Hello, I have a flashing red light on my ACS. I have searched on Cisco.com to see what this meant and how I can fix it. I am aware that it is a critical error on the system health for my ACS. But what exactly does that mean? How can I figure out what is the problem before it becomes a big issue. Any help is well appreciated! Thanks!!

Unfortunately there is not much of information on this. All you need to check if there is any issues with authentication and CPU utilization is not shooting up. That you can check via reports under appliance status.


If all is working fine then you can ignore the led.
