Hi team,

we have setup of two appliances of Cisco Secure ACS. We need to implement in HA mode both.

We have register secondary with primary. But when primary goes offline then not able to view logs on secondary. Able to authenticate with devices.

How we will manage logs on Both appliance.

Hi Milind,

It seems you have not defined log server log server. In a distributed deployment, you should designate one of the secondary ACS

servers  as the Monitoring and Reports server,  and specify that it receive the logs from all servers in the deployment.  By default, a Log Target called the LogCollector identifies the Monitoring and Reports server. In cases where a  distributed deployment is used, the Log Collector option on the web  interface designates which server collects the log information.

It is  recommended that you designate a secondary server within the deployment  to act as the Monitoring and Reports server.

Hi Jagdeep,

what happens when the secondary appliance goes down, which is defined as log target? Then I can't access the logging and monitoring too.
