Cisco ASA Backup Restore Certificates

I have a Cisco ASA 5505 as a BOVPN endpoint using certificates. The config is complete and I now need to back it up and restore to a cold standby Cisco ASA 5505 that will sit on the shelf until something goes wrong.

Problem is I cannot restore my certifcates to the standby.

Can someone point me to a process please.

I have tried the backup and restore wizard in ASDM and to be honest it didn't work.

Please help.

Thanks,

Cisco ASA Backup Restore Certificates

Martin,

Wouldn't it be simpler to put the two in failover for a few minutes (sync is done automatically on bulk sync).

Otherwise I can suggest to export the certificate in PKCS12 (cert + RSA) from active unit and import it into the "standby".

Active:

ciscoasa(config)# crypto ca export TEST pkcs12 cisco123 

Standby:

ciscoasa(config)# crypto ca import TESTBLA pkcs12 cisco123

Cisco ASA Backup Restore Certificates

Failover is a good idea. how can I ensure it syncs in the right direction?

I'm not sure if my base license on the ASA allows for failover. I'll have to check.

I probably should have it set up like that as I build them any way.
