Migration of Anyconnect VPN issues

Hi, I am doing migration of Anyconnect VPN from one ASA to another ASA. I need your suggestion. The migration needs to transfer anyconnect vpn configuration and customization. After I reviewed some documents, it looks like that both configuration and customization are not only thing that need to transfer. Any one can give some suggestion what exactly else need to transfer in addition to vpn configuration and customization ? Thank you

to me it is sort of like cloning into another ASA like that the two ASA are supposed to be paired for HA in active/passive mode. If that is the case, it is definitely more than just Anyconnect files per se. This can include whole ASA configuration, its certificates and private keys into that other ASA with the same IP Address. This is summed up briefly in http://itsecworks.com/2012/11/04/migrate-cisco-asa-configuration-certificates-and-private-keys/

But let focus on the Anyconnect which is concern, and typically it means to transfer the exact AnyConnect XML profile stored in (default) disk0:/webvpn.xml

But probably the neat way is to have configure backup server for Anyconnect instead
You can configure a list of backup servers the client uses in case the user-selected server fails. If the user-selected server fails, the client attempts to connect to the optimal server’s backup at the top of the list. If that fails, the client attempts each remaining server in the Optimal Gateway Selection list, ordered by its selection results.
So t doesn't matter even matter if the client cannot find its config as it can seek backup server as per its system config deployed to it.

Note there is a caveat to all above, the AnyConnect Local Policy
AnyConnectLocalPolicy.xml is an XML file on the client containing security settings. This file is not deployed by the ASA. You must install it manually or deploy it to a user computer using an enterprise software deployment system. If you make changes to an existing local policy file on a user’s system, that system should be rebooted.

If you configure VPN client profiles on the ASA, they must be installed on the client before the client connects to an ASA with BypassDownloader set to true. Because the profile can contain an administrator defined policy, the BypassDownloader true setting is only recommended if you do not rely on the ASA to centrally manage client profiles.
