In Cisco Secure ACS 4.1 is it possible to export a list of all network devices/AAA clients? I am trying to get a handle on my inventory by comparing what have in ACS with the list I exported from CiscoWorks.


Thanks.

I do not believe it is possible to export client/NDG data from ACS. However, if you want to know what devices in LMS are not also in ACS (assuming LMS is integrated with ACS), you can run the Devices that are not configured in ACS Report from Common Services > Device and Credentials > Reports.

Thank you for clarifying this, Mr. Clarke. I will run the report you recommended.

Do you mean a list of all network devices that authenticate against it and all supplicants that attempt to access the network devices ?


Yes it can be done at least on the non-appliance version. I'll dig up the cli commands in the morning. Its not pretty, but its possible.


If you have a lot of devices you should consider ranged aaa profiles instead of individual device profiles.

I was mistaken about its native abilities from the database. You can generate an exported text file of users, but not devices. I use a partners software AAA-Reports! by Extraxi to gleen more information from the log files than is natively possible.


Here's how you export the user list:
