Upgrading to Cisco Secure ACS version 3.2.2

Upgrading your Cisco Secure ACS Appliance to version 3.2.2 requires using the backup and restore features. Changes to the appliance management software in version 3.2.2 require the upgrade method described in this procedure.


Note You cannot upgrade to version 3.2.2 by using the Appliance Upgrade Status page in the HTML interface or the download and upgrade commands at the console. Do not use the appliance upgrade procedures in User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance and Installation and Setup Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.


To upgrade a Cisco Secure ACS Appliance from version 3.2.1 to version 3.2.2, follow these steps:


Step 1 Back up the appliance data and configuration. To do so, use one of the two following features:

ACS Backup, available in the System Configuration section of the HTML interface. For more information, see User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

backup command, available on the serial console. For more information, see Installation and Setup Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

Step 2 Record appliance IP and time configuration. To do so, use the show command to display appliance configuration with the system console.

Result: You have a record of appliance network and time configuration. When you perform Step 3, network and time configuration are lost.

Step 3 Use the Recovery CD for version 3.2.2 to upgrade the appliance to version 3.2.2. This will destroy all data and install a new image.

To upgrade the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance, follow these steps:


Caution Performing this procedure destroys all data stored on the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance. Be sure you have successfully backed up Cisco Secure ACS before proceeding.

a. Put the Recovery CD in the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance CD-ROM drive.

b. Power on the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance or, if the appliance is already running, use the reboot command to reboot it.

Result: The Cisco Secure ACS Appliance displays the following message on the console:

ACS Appliance Recovery Options 
[1] Reset administrator account 
[2] Restore hard disk image from CD 
[3] Exit and reboot 
Enter menu item number: [ ] 

c. Type 2, and then press Enter.

Result: The Cisco Secure ACS Appliance displays the following message on the console:

This operation will completely erase the hard drive. Press `Y' to 
confirm, any other key to cancel: __ 


Caution The next step erases the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance hard drive. You will permanently lose all system data that you have not backed up.

d. Type Y.

Result: The Cisco Secure ACS Appliance processes the new image (this may take more than 2 minutes) while displaying odd characters and then displays the following message on the console:

The system has been reimaged successfully. Please remove this 
recovery CD from the drive, then hit RETURN to restart the system: 

e. Remove the Recovery CD from the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

f. Press Enter to restart the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

Result: The Cisco Secure ACS Appliance reboots, performs some configurations, and reboots again. The configurations that occur after the first reboot take a significant amount of time, during which there is no feedback; this is normal system behavior.

Step 4 Perform initial configuration of the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance. For more information, see Installation and Setup Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.


Tip Initial appliance configuration procedures are available at:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_soft/csacsapp/
install/instalap.htm#1024038


Step 5 Restore the appliance data and configuration. To do so, use one of the two following features:

ACS Restore, available in the System Configuration section of the HTML interface. For more information, see User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

restore command, available on the serial console. For more information, see Installation and Setup Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

Result: The appliance is upgraded to Cisco Secure ACS Appliance version 3.2.2, with the data and configuration preserved by the backup and restore features.


Cisco Security Notices

The following two Cisco Security Notices are relevant to the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance:

products_tech_note09186a00801aedd6.shtml

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/
products_tech_note09186a00801b143a.shtml

We produced a patch for the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance that resolves the issues described in both Cisco Security Notices. The patch is available at the following site:

http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/solution_engine

HTTPS Support and Management Center Applications

Cisco Secure ACS 3.2 does not allow HTTP and HTTPS to function simultaneously. Multi-device management applications, such as Management Center for Firewalls, can be configured to use Cisco Secure ACS for authentication of administrators and authorization of their actions. Communication between early versions of multi-device management applications and Cisco Secure ACS requires HTTP. If you enable HTTPS in Cisco Secure ACS 3.2, communication between multi-device management applications and Cisco Secure ACS fails.

If you use Cisco Secure ACS with a multi-device management application that is not yet capable of HTTPS for communicating with Cisco Secure ACS, you must disable HTTPS in Cisco Secure ACS; otherwise, integration with Cisco Secure ACS fails.


Note Beginning with version 2.2 with Service Pack 2, CiscoWorks supports HTTPS; therefore, multi-device management applications using CiscoWorks 2.2 with Service Pack 2 or later are designed to communicate with Cisco Secure ACS using HTTPS.


Limitations and Restrictions

The following limitations and restrictions apply to Cisco Secure ACS 3.2.1.

Table 3 Known Problems in Cisco Secure ACS Appliance, Version 3.2.2 

Bug ID
Summary
Explanation

CSCdv35872

Insufficient length for NDS context entry

When a Novell NDS database configuration in Cisco Secure ACS has a context list greater than 4095 characters long, editing the NDS configuration page results in incorrect HTML in the browser interface.

Workaround/Solution: Use a context list no longer than 4096 characters.

CSCdv86708

HTTP Port Allocation is not replicated

Changes to HTTP Port Allocation settings do not appear to replicate. After the HTTP Port Allocation settings are changed on the Access Policy Setup page in the Administration Control section on the primary Cisco Secure ACS server and replication succeeds, the secondary Cisco Secure ACS server does not display the changes to the HTTP Port Allocation settings in the HTML interface.

Workaround/Solution: The changes to the HTTP Port Allocation settings do replicate successfully; however, to see the changes on the secondary Cisco Secure ACS, restart the CSAdmin service.

CSCdy51214

fail to delete aaa server when its in sync table/aaa server side

A AAA server cannot be deleted from the "(Not Assigned) AAA Servers" table in Network Configuration if the Synchronize"= list under Synchronization Partners on the RDBMS Synchronization Setup page is empty. An error message "x.x.x.x can not be deleted since it is an synchronization partner" appears.

Workaround/Solution: Move any other AAA server to the Synchronize list, then delete the AAA server.

CSCdy59706

CAA messaging wont work with ppp callback and callin authentication

When having ppp callback and only callin is authenticated (ppp authentication pap chap callin), then messaging to the CAA client will fail with all aging rules selected in ACS.

This is a documentation bug, the above won't work without changes.

Workaround/Solution: Either remove the "callin" keyword to enable authentication for callin and callout (callback in this scenario), or disable callback altogether.

CSCdx19854

Memory check for certificates in https transport is required

When you select the "Use HTTPS Transport for Administration Access" check box on the Access Policy page and more than two HTTPS sessions are active, the following error is presented:

Can't initialize HTTPS transport: too many active 
HTTPS sessions 

SSL Admin design does not enforce a restriction that prevents the modification of Cisco Secure ACS certificates so that there are not more than two certificates in memory at once.

Instead Cisco Secure ACS prevents the initialization of HTTPS when more than two HTTPS sessions are in use.

Workaround/Solution: Reduce the number of concurrent administrative sessions to two or one before attempting to enable HTTPS using the new certificate.

CSCdz06719

Support cmd allows illegal values

On the Cisco Secure ACS Appliance command-line interface, the support command accepts illegal values at various prompts. For example, the "Enter FTP Server Hostname or IP Address" prompt accepts IP addresses that are not valid.

Workaround/Solution: Be careful to respond to prompts with valid responses. For guidance with the use of the support command and its prompts, see the "Obtaining Support Logs via the Serial Console" procedure in Installation and Setup Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

CSCdz13771

err in csauth in every X min replication-certain flow

Replication fails in very particular circumstances:

Set replication frequency to once a minute

Turn off replication for a specific component, such as the user database.

Modify the database component that is not to be replicated, such as by adding a user.

Turn on replication for the specific component

Replication does not occur because Cisco Secure ACS does not perceive the database as having changed.

Workaround/Solution: Restart the CSAuth service.

CSCdz61454

FTP Restore button is not working on Solaris

When the administrative browser is Netscape 7.0 on Solaris 8.0, clicking the Restore button in the Cisco Secure ACS HTML interface has no effect.

Workaround/Solution: Use a supported Windows browser or, if you are using Cisco Secure ACS Appliance, use the restore command on the system console for the appliance.

CSCdz61464

Solaris Netscape 7.0 - Minor Features Failure

When the administrative browser is Netscape 7.0 on Solaris 8.0, some menus in the HTML interface for Cisco Secure ACS do not work properly.

Workaround/Solution: Use a supported Windows browser.

CSCdz61529

Netscape hangs on several times during login session on Solaris

When you use Netscape 7.0 to access the HTML interface of Cisco Secure ACS, the browser stops responding after you access the User Setup page or while trying to add a shared profile component.

Workaround/Solution: Use a supported Windows browser.

CSCdz61875

Configured Default Proxy Distribution Entry is not restored

If you configure the (Default) of "Proxy Distribution Table" in "Network Configuration" after backed up. Previously settings before backup are not restored. Example...

Change the configuration of "Send Accounting Information" in "Proxy Distribution Table" to "Local/Remote" from "Local".

Backup ACS Server

Change that value to "Local" from "Local/Remote".

Restore the ACS Server using backup data of 1:.

That value is restored as "Local" not "Local/Remote".

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCdz73781

Netscape browser on WinNT pointing ACSAppliance is not stable

When you use Netscape 7.0 on Windows to access the HTML interface of Cisco Secure ACS, the browser may stop responding, often while using 99% of CPU time.

Workaround/Solution: Use Task Manager to stop Netscape. Use a supported Internet Explorer browser to access the HTML interface.

CSCdz74860

Cannot delete if Radius and AAA have same self IP

If you add a AAA server entry that is defined as a RADIUS server that has the same IP address as the AAA server entry that represents the Cisco Secure ACS itself, you cannot delete the new RADIUS server entry. Cisco Secure ACS appears to identify this second entry as its self-entry though it is not.

Workaround/Solution: None at this time.

CSCdz86955

Cannot remove shell authorization from groups display

Shell command authorization remains in the User Setup and Group Setup sections of the HTML interface, even after shell command authorization is disabled in Interface Configuration and the feature is not in use.

Workaround/Solution: None at this time.

CSCea00431

Appliance AAA Server entry does not exist after install

After using the recovery CD to restore the appliance harddrive to the original image, Cisco Secure ACS does not have a AAA server table entry for itself in the Network Configuration section.

Workaround: Create a AAA server entry that corresponds to the appliance. The AAA server name may appear as "Self" rather than the name you specify.

CSCea24309

RADIUS (Ascend) page is empty

In the Interface Configuration section of the HTML interface, the page for RADIUS (Ascend) may not display any Ascend RADIUS attributes even though a AAA client entry in Network Configuration is configured to use RADIUS (Ascend).

Workaround: Restart the CSAdmin service.

CSCea25090

Logged In User not showing after going into enable mode on router

With AAA Accounting for exec sessions configured on a NAS, a user shows up in the Logged-In User report on Cisco Secure ACS. With Accounting also configured for going into enable mode, the user no longer appears in the Logged-In User report after authenticating successfully.

Cisco Secure ACS tracks user sessions by IP address and port number. When enable authentication succeeds, Cisco Secure ACS sees that the IP address and port number combination for the existing session have been reused and assumes that the accounting stop packet was not sent or was lost; therefore, the user session is removed from the Logged-In User report even though the session continues in enable mode.

Because the NAS cannot be configured to send new accounting start packets when the enable mode is entered, the Logged-In User report cannot correctly report the user session as ongoing.

Workaround: None.

CSCea28562

Restore deleted Self AAA Server

When you restore the system database for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance, the AAA Servers table entry that represents the appliance itself is deleted.

Workaround/Solution: Recreate the self entry manually after performing a system restoration.

CSCea54336

restore process related issues from a dump file created by s/w backup

If you restore a Cisco Secure ACS Appliance database using a backup file created by Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server, you may encounter one or both of the following issues:

The AAA Servers table entry for the appliance itself is deleted.

Entries in the Remote Agents table are deleted.

Workaround/Solution: Restore the database from a backup created by a Cisco Secure ACS Appliance.

CSCea55457

Radius Attributes do not appear in user/group profile page

After you enable RADIUS attributes in the Interface Configuration section of the Cisco Secure ACS HTML interface, they do not appear or appear only partially in Group Setup or User Setup, as applicable.

Workaround/Solution: Restart the CSAdmin service.

CSCea60497

no msg in rdbms log on the sync partner about the sync operation

When a Cisco Secure ACS Appliance receives RDBMS Synchronization data from a primary ACS, the RDBMS Synchronization log on the secondary ACS does not record the synchronization event, regardless of success or failure.

Workaround/Solution: None at this time. You may be able to deduce when synchronization occurred and whether it succeeded by reading the synchronization logs and reviewing the RDBMS Synchronization configuration on the primary ACS.

CSCea62203

Resource Usage values in Support page are incorrect

System and service resource usage statistics presented on the Support page of a Cisco Secure ACS Appliance may not be accurate.

Workaround/Solution: None at this time.

CSCea62226

CSAgent (solaris) - appliance present the RA as running while is not

The HTML interface of a Cisco Secure ACS Appliance indicates that the logging service of a Solaris remote agent is available even though it is not. For Solaris remote agents, the service status displayed for the remote agent in Network Configuration is not reliable.

Workaround/Solution: Log into the computer running the Solaris remote agent to determine if the CSLogAgent process is running.

CSCea66355

Login prompt displayed too early when upgrade via CLI

When you apply an upgrade to a Cisco Secure ACS appliance using the upgrade command at the serial console command prompt, you erroneously receive a Login prompt just before the appliance reboots itself.

Workaround/Solution: None. The appliance reboots after the Login prompt. After the reboot is complete, you can login normally.

CSCea67901

UCP has trouble with dots in usernames

When using the User changeable passwords utility to change the passwords for the usernames which contain dot (".") character, after clicking on one of the links on the top, the links at the top in the subsequent screen contain only the part of the username before the dot.

Workaround: Edit the passwd.htm and result.htm files in the cgi-bin directory to comment out the table with the links - so that the users would not be able to get confused.

CSCea71759

Headline of UCP application stating Cisco Secure ACS

The web pages of the User-Changeable Passwords (UCP) utility have titles and headings that suggest that the user is logging into Cisco Secure ACS for an administrative session. This is not possible from UCP and the headings and titles are erroneous.

Workaround/Solution: Educate users about the function of UCP or modify the HTML file contents to change the misleading titles and headings.

CSCea74269

CSAdmin issue when downloading upgrade via GUI and https is in use

If HTTPS is enabled for administrative access to the HTML interface, you cannot transfer an upgrade package to a Cisco Secure ACS appliance. The transfer fails with an "Action canceled" message.

Workaround/Solution: Temporarily disable HTTPS before transferring the upgrade package.

CSCea74289

cascade replication due to user pass change-dont work

Cascading replication does not occur when the replication trigger is user password change and the primary Cisco Secure ACS is configured to perform replication manually.

Workaround/Solution: Use scheduled replication on the primary Cisco Secure ACS.

CSCea87748

Downloadable ACLs deleted and downsized after backup via CLI

If your Cisco Secure ACS Appliance has downloadable ACLs defined that have more than approximately 31 kilobytes of text in them and you use the system console to backup and restore the database, the downloadable ACLs are truncated to approximately 31 kilobytes or are deleted entirely.

Workaround/Solution: Do not create downloadable ACLs that contain more than 30 kilobytes of data; or, if this is unavoidable, keep text file records of the ACLs so that, if a restoration performed from the system console is necessary, you can recreate the downloadable ACLs.

CSCeb00443

ODBC logging settings appear after restore/replication from SW

After replicating from Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server to a Cisco Secure ACS appliance or after using a backup file from the Windows version to restore the appliance version, ODBC logging settings may appear on the Logging page of the System Configuration section of the appliance HTML interface. This is erroneous because the appliance version does not support ODBC logging.

Workaround/Solution: None at this time.

CSCeb11180

RA install on machine that had acs sw-error & install finishes

Installation of Cisco Secure ACS Remote Agent for Windows Servers ends with the error message "invalid parameters encountered". Despite the error message, the installation is successful.

Workaround: Ignore the error message.

CSCeb11207

rdbms sync dont get the first line in action file

RDBMS Synchronization fails when accountactions.csv has data on its first line.

Workaround/Solution: The first line of accountactions.csv should either be blank or contain column titles.

CSCeb14972

appliance ip is 0.0.0.0 after recovery & upgrade

After you apply an upgrade to a Cisco Secure ACS appliance, a AAA client entry may appear in Network Configuration that has the same name as the appliance but has the IP address 0.0.0.0.

Workaround/Solution: Delete the AAA client entry erroneously created by the upgrade process.

CSCeb15110

appliance name doesn't appear in dist table, rdbms sync table

After you upgrade a Cisco Secure ACS appliance, the Proxy Distribution Table in Network Configuration may be missing the entry that represents the appliance itself. You may also notice that the appliance entry is missing from the Synchronization Partners table on the RDBMS Sychronization page.

Workaround/Solution: None at this time.

CSCeb15219

Couldnt add NAS filter by CSDdsync

When you attempt to add a network access restriction using RDBMS Synchronization, action code 122 "ADD_NAS_ACCESS_FILTER" doesn't work. When you use the UN variable, the error message "The named user variable cannot be found" is logged even though the user exists in the CiscoSecure user database.

Workaround/Solution: Synchronization with action code 122 succeeds after you manually select the "Define IP based access restrictions" option in user profile.

CSCeb16968

ACS shared profile components disappear after ACS upgrade

After you upgrade Cisco Secure ACS, authorization support for Management Center (MC) applications, such as Management Center for Firewalls, fails. In the Shared Profile Components section of the Cisco Secure ACS HTML interface, each MC that has registered with Cisco Secure ACS has a set of pages for configuring authorization components. If you access a page for editing or adding authorization components, you see an error message about a missing XML file.

Workaround/Solution: You must use CiscoWorks to re-register all MCs with Cisco Secure ACS.

Log into the CiscoWorks desktop with admin privileges.

Go to Server Configuration > Setup > Security > Select Login Module. Configure CiscoWorks to use the CiscoWorks Local module, and then configure CiscoWorks to use the TACACS+ module.

Go to VPN Security Management Solution > Administration > Common Services > Configuration > AAA Servers. Unregister all MCs and then re-register all MCs.

Log out of CiscoWorks.

CSCeb21037

Windows Remote Agent un-install issue

Uninstalling Cisco Secure Remote Agent for Windows does not remove some subdirectories, such as those that contain log files.

Workaround/Solution: Manually delete the directories left by the uninstallation process.

CSCeb21053

rdbms sync on add nas-err on log while nas are been added

When you add a AAA client or AAA server to a Cisco Secure ACS appliance using RDBMS Synchronization, you may an error in the RDBMS Synchronization log that says the AAA client/Server was not added when in was added to the AAA client or AAA server tables in Network Configuration.

Workaround/Solution: None. You can confirm the addition of the AAA client or AAA server by viewing the AAA client and AAA server tables in the Network Configuration section of the HTML interface.

CSCeb21358

CSLogAgent could not be started when certain acct attr is selected

When an "unknown" attribute is added to the logging configuration on the

"Remote Logging Agent CSV RADIUS Accounting File Configuration" page in a Cisco Secure ACS appliance, remote agents that use the appliance as a configuration provider have difficulties starting CSLogAgent.

Workaround/Solution: Remove any "unknown" attributes from the RADIUS Accounting log configuration in the Cisco Secure ACS HTML interface.

CSCeb23766

Inconsistency with ACS response if username contains invalid chars

Radius usernames entered with invalid characters results in the ACS server not sending any response at all. This can cause the NAS to fail over to the configured secondary authentication method which may not be desirable.

Workaround: At the present time, TACACS authentication does not appear to have this same problem.

CSCeb36966

large number Windows groups causes ACS GUI timeout

When there is a large number of Windows groups (this was observed with 25000), the ACS http GUI connection times out.

Workaround/Solution: Force the Windows server that Cisco Secure ACS uses to retrieve the groups to cache the groups locally. Go into Active Directory Users and Groups on the computer running Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server. If you are using Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine, go into Active Directory Users and Groups on the computer running the Cisco Secure Remote Agent for Windows. In Active Directory, view all the groups. In Cisco Secure ACS, configure the mappings. This works because the server has cached the information.

CSCeb43948

Could not generate valid Password with password length => 9

If, in System Configuration > Local Password Management, you configure Cisco Secure ACS to require user passwords to be nine or more characters in length, Cisco Secure ACS generates "Could not generate valid Password" messages in the logs for the CSMon service. The message appears on the schedule you define for CSMon to test services. This has been verified as a problem on 3.1 and 3.2. Earlier versions were not tested, but likely have the problem.

Workaround: None.

CSCeb45624

NAR does not work comma separated source address

The documentation and the short help pages in the browser indicate that you can specify multiple IP addresses separated by commas for a source IP in the IP-based NAR section. This is not true. Any attempt to actually do so will result in Cisco Secure ACS ignoring the NAR config for the telnet connections to a router. This has been verified in ACS 3.2 and ACS 3.1.

Workaround: Do not use commas to separate multiple IP addresses in NARs.

CSCeb51393

multi-admin needs to be able to add/edit/delete downloadable ACLs

In the evaluation version of ACS 3.2 scheduled backups might not always operate. This has been observed when Cisco Secure ACS contained 60000 users and 1200 AAA Clients.

After a while scheduled backup resumed its proper operation and returned to normal. The reason is not clear, and requires further investigation.

Workaround: None.

CSCeb58021

Server Hello packet of TLS from ACS Server has garbage.

In RFC 2246, the Server Hello has 4 bytes of gmt_unix_time and 28 bytes of random data. But, Server Hello from CiscoSecureACS has 4 bytes of garbage(00 00 00 00), 4 bytes of gmt_unix_time and 24 bytes of random data. Some clients may fail in authentication.

There is no workaround.

CSCeb58107

cisco-nas-port attribute should be included in VoIP accounting log

The cisco-nas-port attribute should be available in the VoIP accounting log.

CSCeb62898

Group mapping ordering applet is not properly ordered

In a newly created Windows group mapping configuration, group mappings list in the wrong order.

Workaround: On the page for ordering group mappings, order the group mappings and click Submit. As additional mappings are added, they appear properly at the end of the list of mappings.

CSCeb63188

database define with special chars permitted but unusable later

Symptom: ACS allows definition of a database with special characters in the name, like "Windows (test)" but on trying to actually use the database in the 'Selected Databases' column with 3.0.3 & 3.2, the error message is 'The selected DB search list is empty'. The software should not allow naming of a database when the name cannot be used.

Workaround: Do not use special characters in a database name.

CSCeb82136

ACL size 35K cannot be edited - The page cannot be displayed

If you create a downloadable ACL that is larger than 32KB (roughly 32,000 characters, including name and description), when you try to edit it later, the browser shows a "page cannot be displayed" error.

Workaround: Do not add or edit a downloadable ACL so that it is larger than 32KB.

CSCec00789

Calling-Station-ID attribute description inaccurate

In the user guide for Cisco Secure ACS, RADIUS IETF attribute 31, Called-Station-ID is inaccurately documented as only being supported for ISDN and modem calls for AS5200s. This is not true.

Cisco Secure ACS supports this attribute regardless of what type of AAA client sends it.

CSCec06340

acs is miscalculating the user-password when proxying

Symptom: in such a topology:

nas---> acs1 proxy ----> radius b 

and when using the proxy distribution table to do the proxy.

when acs 3.1 and up is being used as a proxy server, when it re-calculates the user-password attribute in order to forward it to the end radius server, it miscalculates the user-password attribute. if the same pre-shared key is being used between acs1 and radius b, then in principal the same user-password should be calculated, but it's not and usually that user-password attribute gets same values as first couple of bytes of the original user-password while the rest are zeros.

This problem has been observed in acs 3.1 and 3.2 released versions. it also might be in 3.0.

This problem doesn't happen when proxying between 2 acs servers. it only happens between an acs server and some 3rd party server due to the way the password is calculated.

Workaround: instead of using proxy distribution table to do the proxy in acs 1, configure radius b as a "radius token server" in external databases, and configure unknown user policy on acs1 to check radius b. of course in that case on radius b you should configure acs 1 as a network device and give it the correct pre-shared secret configured in radius token server on acs1.

CSCec18522

PIX downloadable ACLs do not allow -; no pix object groups

The Cisco Secure ACS downloadable ACL feature does not allow hyphens, "-", in ACL definitions; however, the PIX Firewall access-list command has a "object-group" keyword. You cannot configure downloadable ACLs in Cisco Secure ACS using the object-group keyword.

Workaround: None at this time.

CSCec18573

Replication of VMS configurations requires restart of CSAdmin

VMS-specific attributes replicated to secondary Cisco Secure ACS are not available. This also prevents a CiscoWorks administrator from registering an application with the secondary Cisco Secure ACS.

Workaround: Restart the CSAdmin service. After this service is restarted, registration from CiscoWorks succeeds and the VMS configuration data replicated to the secondary Cisco Secure ACS is available in the HTML interface.

CSCec39523

Proxy ACS changes upper case letters to lower in username RADIUS att

Topology: NAS--proxy RADIUS ACS--authenticating RADIUS server

Symptom: If the NAS is sending a username (IETF attribute 1) in a RADIUS acces-request packet, which contains upper- and lower-case letters, the proxy ACS RADIUS will forward this access-request packet to the authenticating RADIUS server with all upper-case letters changed to lower-case letters

Conditions: This is observed only when prefix stripping is configured on the proxy RADIUS ACS and the username contains the prefix to be stripped by the proxy RADIUS ACS.

This is not observed when suffix stripping or no stripping takes place.

Workaround: Do not use upper-case letters in the username attribute, when performing prefix stripping

CSCec46370

Group mapping misbehavior

When an external RADIUS database attempts to specify a user's group using Cisco IOS/PIX RADIUS attribute 1, [009\001] cisco-av-pair, and the group number specified is "500", Cisco Secure ACS fails the user authentication and logs a seemingly unrelated error related to Group 100 and network access restrictions (even if no NARs are applied to the user). Specifying a group number larger than 500, such as 501, functions as expected, with the user assigned to the Default group.

RADIUS group specification requires that the assignment in the cisco-av-pairattribute use the following format:

ACS:CiscoSecure-Group-Id = N 

where N is the Cisco Secure ACS group number (0 through 499) to which Cisco Secure ACS should assign the user.

Workaround: Ensure that the external RADIUS server database only specifies a group number between 0 and 499.

CSCec61110

authentications on secondary acs may fail after replication

Symptom: In environment where primary and secondary Cisco Secure ACS primary and secondary servers are kept in synch using the replication feature, user authentication may fail for users defined in an external database users and the Failed Attempts log will contain an "external DB not configured" error.

Conditions: This happens with certain external database types such as LDAP, NDS, and the various token server types. It can't happen with the Windows external DB. By configuring external databases in a different order on the primary and secondary Cisco Secure ACS servers, authentication fails on the secondary server for users defined in the databases configured in a different order. If external databases are configured in same order on primary and secondary servers, this does not happen. For example, if you configure two instances of LDAP external user databases on primary and secondary servers but configure them in different orders, after users are replicated, LDAP authentication attempts fail on the secondary server.

Workaround: For each database type involved in the problem, delete the external databases on all secondary servers and reconfigure them in the same order that they are defined on the primary server. If this fails, delete the affected external databases on the primary and secondary servers and reconfigure them.

CSCec63624

ACS 3.2 admin gui locks and displays action canceled message

If the Shell (exec) service is disabled in Interface Configuration > TACACS+ (Cisco IOS) and you attempt to access a group other than the default group, the Cisco Secure ACS HTML interface ends the administrative session.

Workaround: To start a new session, close the browser window, open a new browser window, and access the HTML interface again.

To permit access to groups other than the default group, enable the group-level Shell (exec) service in Interface Configuration > TACACS+ (Cisco IOS).

CSCec64143

Uninstalling Win Remote Agent when un-install terminates unexpected

When Windows Remote Agent uninstallation process terminates unexpectedly and the uninstallation process could not be completed, registry keys remain for the remote agent. Further attempts to install the remote agent will fail due to these registry keys.

Workaround: Use regedit to delete all Cisco Remote Agent entries. In the registry, search for "csagent" and "acs agent". Delete all matching entries. If they cannot be deleted, ignore them.

CSCec74461

RSA Next Tokencode mode not work via Cisco PEAP due to timeout

"Next passcode" mode for RSA token card users may not succeed with a Cisco PEAP client if the timeout value on the AAA client is not sufficient. This is primarily an issue with Cisco Aironet, as Access Points do not have configurable timeouts.

Workaround: The issue lies in the AAA client, not Cisco Secure ACS. If the timeout value is configurable, you can increase it; however, if it is not sufficient, users must attempt to start a new session in order to use a new passcode.

CSCec79707

PEAP Machine auth against trusted domain failed via RA

PEAP machine authentication against a trusted remote domain doesn't work with Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine. This feature requires use of the remote agent for Windows. Despite correct configuration of the remote agent and of the solution engine, PEAP machine authentication fails.

Workaround: None.

CSCec86357

Upgrade via GUI is effected when using CLI for certain operations

With Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine, applying a patch or an upgrade using the HTML interface while also performing commands on the console can cause problems. For example, changing the hostname while applying a patch can cause the solution engine to fail.

Workaround: Be sure that no one is performing console commands while applying a patch or an upgrade using the HTML interface.

CSCed01627

Protocol Error in Login

When you log into the HTML interface of Cisco Secure ACS, you may receive a protocol error and be unable to access the HTML interface. This applies to both Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Servers and Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine.

Workaround: Restart CSAdmin service.

CSCed01640

Memory leak in CSAuth caused with Leap-Proxy scenario

When you use LEAP proxy with Cisco Secure ACS under stress, the CSAuth service uses additional system memory and does not release the memory when the stress is removed from the system.

Workaround: Restart the CSAuth service.

CSCed08009

Directory / file management doesn't enforce exact number of files

When changing parameters in Log File Management on Appliance (config provider) Directory / file management doesn't enforce exact number of files:

Steps to reconstruct:

Set the size to greater than 100KB & Keep only the last 3 files.

Checked files are created every 100K & are limited to 3 files.

Change the upper limit of file number to 5, you should see that number of log files is not enforced as it did in the first step.

After running authentications you should get more than 5 log files to see that the new settings are not applied.

It happened on Passed Authentications & Failed Attempts.

It goes for other remote logging services as well.

CSCed10382

PAP authentications to LDAP causes mem leak in CSAuth & CSRadius

When running PAP authentications for several hours (1.4 million authentications) against an LDAP external user database, CSAuth usage is 283 MB. This indicates that CSAuth has a memory leak.

Workaround: If CSAuth memory usage becomes a problem, restart CSAuth.

CSCed15862

CSAuth crashes upon PEAP stress because SSL-C library

Under a sustained heavy PEAP authentication load, the CSAuth service may crash. In testing, this occurred after 60,000 successful authentications.

Workaround: Restart the CSAuth service.

CSCed18334

CSDBSync logs become swollen with time

CSDBSync logs grow very large and contain many "WaitForMultipleObjects returned [-1]" messages. CPU usage may also be very high. The issue is likely caused by starting services in the wrong order. If this occur with Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server rather than Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine, the services that make up Cisco Secure ACS may be running as different user accounts rather than as the same user account for all Cisco Secure ACS services.

Workaround: If you are using Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server, verify that all Cisco Secure ACS services are running as the same user account. To do so, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and view the properties of each Cisco Secure ACS service.

Reboot the Cisco Secure ACS server. When the server reboots, services automatically start in the correct order and the problem should abate.

CSCed23602

Docs unclear about rack mounting parts and procedure

The Installation and Setup Guide for Cisco Secure ACS Appliance provides inadequate details about how to assemble the rack mounting kit. Terminology used to refer to the cable support bracket and the cable tray clamp should be clarified. The procedure needs to be revised to more clearly express how the cable support bracket and cable tray clamp should be attached to the appliance, the rails, and each other.

Workaround: For clarification, refer to the following information.

The rack mount kit has four parts. These include two rails, a cable support bracket, and a cable tray clamp. In the product packaging, the cable support bracket may be separated from the other three rack mounting kit parts; however, the cable support bracket is essential for proper rack mounting.

The cable support bracket is C-shaped and has a screw on one end and a metal tab on the other. The cable tray clamp has a black plastic clamp that slides open and closed.

As you face the appliance from the rear, the cable support bracket should be attached to the left side of the appliance. Its tab must be inserted in the slot in the upper left corner of the rear of the appliance. To do so, you MUST remove the appliance cover, taking the appropriate safety precautions outlined in the documentation. The right side of the of the cable support bracket screws into the appliance. The screw hole is located at the bottom edge of the appliance rear panel.

Do not attach the cable tray clamp directly to the appliance. Instead, attach it to the right, rear corner of the cable support bracket and to the rail on the right, using the screws built into the cable tray clamp. Again, directions are relative to facing the rear of the appliance.

Note If you attempt to attach the cable tray clamp directly to the appliance, the ports on the rear of the appliance may be partially blocked or more difficult to access.

CSCin45582

VMS2.2-BT:Shared Profile components are not overwritten

If you re-register a Management Center application with Cisco Secure ACS, Cisco Secure ACS retains the authorization settings from the previous registration rather than replacing them with default authorization settings.

Workaround: None.
