On Console i m not ale to give static ip to it. As soon as the appliance reboots it enables DHCP & the configured static ip is lost. Details of Appliance is:

Cisco Secure ACS:

Appliance Management Software:

Appliance Base Image:

CSA build (Patch: 4_0_1_543)

Status: Appliance is functioning properly

Even tried to reimage the device with the recovery cd & again reconfigured the device. During that time i had provided it the tatic ip & also checked for connectivity test & it is successful. But as the device reload at the end it takes default ip add:

Appliance IP Configuration

DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . .: Yes

IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . .:

Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . .:

After that when i login into device through console & try to provide static ip add it doesnt takes it(sometimes it takes but as soon as the device is again powered back again the static ip is lost)...

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Is this a new ACS SE 1113( I assume that it is), that you are trying to build, then simply re-image it with a recovery CD for ACS SE 1113

You can get this from TAC. That CD has a fix for Set IP already in corporated. Once ACS SE is at 4.1.1, then upgrade it to version 4.1.4

The bug CSCsm73656 was due to some issue on the hardware ACS SE 1113 (not on all ACS SE 1113, only some/few), it is not version/software specific. If your ACS SE is not losing the IP address, then you need not worry about it.

You can upgrade to version 4.1.1, then to 4.1.4 from 4.0, and ACS SE should not lose its IP address during the process.

Well, I cannot comment on that, but would suggest, go for 4.2
