We have an existing ACS running 126.96.36.199 and have purchased a new device running 188.8.131.52. I understand that to replicate they need to be the same version. Can someone please clarify the upgrade path from 184.108.40.206? Do I need to request the software from TAC or is it here -http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/acs-soleng-3des ?
