I'm currently looking to migrate a customer from ACS 3.3 on a Win2K server to an Appliance.
The current ACS server provides AAA for approx 1000 routers/switches etc to provide authentication for interactive logon (via Novell LDAP) and scripted maintenance logon (via local DB). ACS also provides accounting for logon/configuration changes etc.
Q1. Will both 5.1 and 4.2 ACS appliance engines provide these facilities (local db/ldap etc), if so then 5.1 would be the best choice?
Q2. Can the data (AAA clients/users etc) be exported from 3.3 and imported to 4.2 or 5.1, as ideally I want to keep the original server untouched for rollback.
Thanks in advance.
