Hi,

Have you tried removing the remark completely for the access-list? Does it say 'remark does not exist'? Also does the original configuration contains special characters in remarks?

Also, are you using this ASA through ASDM from both Windows or Linux machine? If yes, it matches the below defect :

https://tools.cisco.com/bugsearch/bug/CSCtn17903/?reffering_site=dumpcr

So, if you have made the changes from Windows and then accessing the ASA from Linux for removing , then you would not succeed. Therefore you need to go back to windows and remove them(try, not to use special character)

Also check if the ASA and ASDM versions are compatible. Please follow the below link to check the same:

Hope it helps.

Thanks Akshay,

We are using CSM to deploy and manage policies. The CSM dosen't show this delta but we see this in the error that comes up.

When I remove it from CLI it dosen't allow me As there is a "?" in the remark which ASA takes it for "help" and provides a list of options

ASDM, I am using it on windows box.
