Description (partial)

When a key with anyconnect license enabled is activated, the warning message is not clear enough to understand that the clientless webvpn and hostscan features will not work anymore as the anyconnect-essentials gets configured under the webvpn configuration.
Below is the message that comes up on cli as of now.

ASA# activation  0xdf1cc57f 0x94835e6a 0x3d4271bc 0xe0900464 0x$
Validating activation key. This may take a few minutes...

WARNING: AnyConnect Essentials license active. Basic VPN support is
in effect. For specific details, please refer to Cisco AnyConnect VPN
Client Administrator Guide.

The Warning should be extended to let the administrator know that:

Anyconnect essentials gets enabled under this part of the configuration:


1. Activating license key which has anyconnect essentials enabled on an ASA that acts as AnyConnect, Clientless SSLVPN Server with/without CSD.
2. Use CLI to activate the license.
