how do I add a custom RADIUS device to CSACS?

I have done this once before using csutil, but I was just trying to read through the csutil doc again to see how to do this and it says:

"We recommend that you use RDBMS Synchronization to add and configure custom RADIUS vendors"

So I look in the RDBMS doc and all it says is:

"RDBMS Synchronization enables you to configure custom RADIUS vendors and VSAs. In addition to supporting a set of predefined RADIUS vendors and vendor-specific attributes (VSAs), Cisco Secure ACS supports RADIUS vendors and VSAs that you define. Vendors you add must be IETF-compliant; therefore, all VSAs that you add must be sub-attributes of IETF RADIUS attribute number 26."

Then the rest of that doc ( is about how to add users and stuff using RDBMS...but there is a link to "RDBMS Synchronization Import Definitions".

That document seems to map out a bunch of fields but i have no idea what I am supposed to do with them or how to get the ****** device created in CSACS.

Can someone walk me through this process step by step??

I have a vendor code, an attritbute #, and an attribute do I do this?

You need to make CSV file to upload VSA in ACS. CSV should be in specific format mentioned in the link. Find attached the RDBMS Csv maker along with the steps to upload it.

Hope that helps
