Description (partial)

Currently, when an AC client profile(XML) is modified using VPN profile editor on our machine and is uploaded to the router with the same name; the profile on the AC client machine is not updated when a new connection is made.

This is due to the behavior wherein the XML profile is saved on the cache of the router for faster access during operation instead of fetching the profile from the flash itself.

The profile on the client is not updated unless the cache is cleared/reset by re-applying the following command:

crypto vpn anyconnect profile SSL flash:/SSL.xml

Though, this might be an expected behavior but causes trouble when we make changes to the existing profile (being used under one of the policy groups) and upload the updated profile on the router (which has the same name as they're just modifying the contents on the existing profile).

When an existing AnyConnect client profile that is being used for one of the policy group (under WebVPN context) is modified on our machine using AC VPN Profile editor and uploaded to the router's flash with the same name, the router will still use the cached profile(old profile) for a new connection hence pushing the old (cached profile) to the client side.
