CSM Upgrade to 4.1 (licenses need to be procured again)?
We upgrade CSM from 3.x to 4.01 last year, major upgrade and therefore we paid for new licensing. This morning I noticed CSM 4.1 has been posted and started reading the release notes.
•All Security Manager 4.0.1 and earlier customers need to procure a new license (or licenses) for Security Manager 4.1 irrespective of whether they have a valid license (or licenses) for Security Manager 4.0.1 or earlier. With the exception of incremental licenses, existing Security Manager 4.0.1 and earlier licenses are not valid for Security Manager 4.1.
Tip If you have a valid license for Security Manager 4.0, you have the option of procuring a release-specific upgrade license that is valid for upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1; this option is introduced with Security Manager 4.1. There are different upgrade licenses. Each one corresponds to a particular base license from the previous version. You can use a particular upgrade license (e.g., PRO50U) only if you applied the corresponding base license (e.g., PRO50) to the previous version of Security Manager. Other upgrade licenses are not accepted.
If no license is provided during installation, the resulting installation will be an evaluation version.
If you provide an invalid license during installation, an error message prompts you for a valid license (but installation is not aborted).
In previous versions of CSM 3.x, minor upgrades required no licensing changes and upgrades were included in the maint contract.
Is this Installation note correct and minor upgrade requires procurement of new licenses?

I would suggest you to refer to your account team at Cisco to get more info on this. However I will try to answer and give you a bit of context.
Although the name would suggest that 4.1 is a minor release, this is not entirely true as 4.1 will add new features (in particular reporing features) on top of all the ones present in 4.0 (in that case main feature was eventing viewer)
I need to migrate from C170 to C190 and have already match to the same Firmware Version. I have a question. Is there any method that can export and import the configuration file instead of form cluster ?

I've fixed this before but now I'm running into a different type of an issue. My firewall isn't booting to the image so I have to keep reloading the image onto the ASA. Any help would be appreciated. Also my Config-Register is set to 0x1. As of right now,...
