    These instructions are for Enabling AnyConnect Client Profile Downloads to a new profile.
    I’m trying to figure out how to enable an AnyConnect via RDP for an existing profile.
    My setup has been complete done via CLI, and what’s interesting is that none of the 15+ operational profiles I have show up in this menu in the GUI. Instead they’re all listed in the “AnyConnect Connection Profiles” menu.
    Any ideas on how to enable an AnyConnect via RDP for an existing profile listed here?
