Description (partial)

when issuing "write standby" from active unit or ASA reloads and when it reads configuration from flash the following error message is seen:
ERROR: access-list <ACL Name> is empty, no access control elements configured

And the ACL is not applied on the interface as an access-group (the access-group command does not show in show run output any more.

The ACL configuration will be different, all remark lines will show at the beginning of the ACL and all ACEs will show at the end of the ACL.

-- ASA running and later or and later.
-- object-group-search access-control is enabled
-- ACL to be applied as an access-group contains a remark as the first line (this will cause the ACL not to be applied, however if the condition is not met the ACL configuration will still be in the wrong order)
