Backups for multicontext ASA

I open a ticket with TAC on where to find the backup options within the ASDM & found out the  backup option is not available within the ASDM & firewalls  running in multi-contexts modes.So
one Prerequisite for using the ASDM backup is for the firewall to be in a single-context operating mode.

Also one other thing that I found that was interesting, there's no means for  a cli  command to backup up a context while in the admin context or any other defined context. So if you had a admin defined for a context, he/she could not use a backup/restoral commands unless he/she changed to the system context. This goes back to the "limited" to no access to the disk0: storage & from within a none "system" contexts.
