I think the context configs are stored in the flash: of system and from
memory are displayable with more(?). Remember though that they are the
startup configs not the running configs. 
So if you are confident that all your contexts are saved then
potentially all necessary config info is available from system?

Sam, you're not missing any magic command.

The system context contains the physical interface configurations as
well as the context configurations, which include the interface and
resource allocations for each context.  All of this is critical
information if you need to rebuild a multi-context ASA configuration
from scratch after a hardware failure, say.

Really? My system context just shows the context allocations, but not
the context config. Is there a magic command I'm missing?
