I have reimaged one of our 2 NAC Guest servers and now want to restart replication.


To set up replication using two Cisco NAC Guest Servers, the IP address of the remote server is configured on each server and one of the following 2 options has to be selected:

'This node contains the data'.

'This node will copy data from other node'.


Is 'this node' the remote server or the local server (where the configuration is being done)?

Initial replication is configured by setting one of the Cisco NAC Guest Servers to copy all of the data from the other Guest Server. The Guest Server that is configured to copy the data from the other device is first set to delete all of its own data. This ensures that no conflicts exist. Cisco recommends setting up replication at initial installation of Cisco NAC Guest Server, or when adding a new Guest Server to an existing implementation. Once one of the Guest Servers has received a copy of the data from the other device they are synchronized and replication is turned on. Any data that is updated on one Guest Server is then automatically replicated to the other Guest Server.
