Hi all,

  We are using Cisco ACS 1120 with 5.0 base licenced for TACACS , does ACS 5.0 support RSA server as external database for authenticating the users as we do in the previous versions of 4.2,4.0.

If so kindly let me know how we can do it ? or do we have any document?

This is supported in ACS 5.1. ACS 5.1 can be downloaded from CCO and can upgrade ACS 5.0 to ACS 5.1

The RSA SecurID Agent is built in to ACS 5.1. Through the ACS GUI you can perform all the required configuration items to activate and configure the agent. This includes setting the:
  • agent record (sdconf.rec)
  • load balancing data (sdopts.rec)
  • node secret (securid)
  • agent status file (sdstatus.12)

Hi Sreekanth,

You must have a repository configured with an FTP, NFS, or SFTP network server (but not a TFTP repository) to perform the ACS upgrade.

Here is how you create a repository with FTP

acs/admin(config)# repository myftp1
acs/admin(config-Repository)# url
acs/admin(config-Repository)# user anonymous password 123456
acs/admin(config-Repository)# exit

The detailed steps for upgrading from 5.0 to 5.1 can be found on this Cisco link.

Hope this helps.
