Description (partial)

When the ASA config is migrated to FMC using the tool, the rule mapping is based on the nameif and zones that are present in the ASA. The corresponding access-group is used to determine the categories of rules that will be pushed on the FMC.

Now, it is possible that the rules are identical to each other but because of the access-group binding, the tool ends up pushing the access list as unique ones on the FMC. While this is not a defect or incorrect configuration, this leads to the bloated configuration on the FMC leading to deployment failure because of the size of the config on FMC. (This does not mean a high number of ACE). 

A warning message needs to be given pro-actively that the migrated config has scope of regrouping the rules together to reduce the size of the config.

Sample SFO that lead to the problem along with the ASA config is attached.
