I created one such file i am attaching the file here, compare it with the attributes you want to include.

following link explains the attributes used in the file:


Following steps can be used to import file in ACS:

Please place this file on a FTP server, and go to System Configuration >

RDBMS Synchronization > Fill in the credentials > Synchronize Now.

If RDBMS Synchronization option is not visible, enable it from Interface

Configuration > Advanced options > check "RDBMS Synchronization" > submit

Once RDBMS Synchronization is successfull Reboot the ACS SE.

Once ACS SE is backup. Create an AAA client entry with RADIUS (Netscreen)

as the protocol. After this go to,

Interface configuration > RADIUS (Netscreen) and enable which ever

attribute we want to be visible.

If you have ACS SE(Box that is shipped by Cisco with ACS pre installed), then steps provided by Rohit are the one that you need to follow. And you do not need to do anything from Command Line on ACS SE.

In case you have ACS for Windows. A software package, that is installed on Windows server platform, then there's another way to do this, using csutil.exe utility.


If you could provide with the original VSA file/Dictionary file/.ini file. We can take a look into it.
