I have a few questions regarding CSM's ACS integration.
1) What's the difference between using ACS mode and non-ACS TACACS+?
2) I've been testing with ACS mode and it seems that there is a delay in the time a device is added to ACS and CSM's ability to add it? Whenever I add a device in ACS and then try to add it in CSM, I get an error that the device is not authorized. However, if I manually restart the Daemon service, then I can add it without a problem. It seems that CSM does not immediately check ACS, but some local database of authorized devices that is updated at some interval. What is that interval?
3) I understand that when I switch to ACS mode, any devices previously entered in CSM will disappear because they are not authorized in ACS yet. But if they disappear, how can I change the settings??? Then it seems like there would be multiple versions of the same devices set up in CSM.
Any help or direction here would be greatly appreciated.
Also, we're running CSM 3.3.0 and ACS 4.2
