I have two ACS boxes that I use here at work.  The primary is working fine, but lately the secondary stopped to working.  I checked it today and it is saying that the AD connectivity status is DISCONNECTED.  I tested the connection and it is succesful.  I checked the time settings and name servers as well and they all seem to be good.  Anyone have any idea where else I should look to find the issue?  They are using version

  • Cisco Employee,

If you have already checked the basic stuff then we can jump to adclient debugs to see whats happening.

From the ACS CLI


acs/admin# acs-config

Escape character is CNTL/D.




acs/admin(config-acs)# debug-adclient enable

Duplicate the issue and run the below listed command to see the live logs

show acs-logs filename ACSADAgent.log

Hi Bryan Roth

Try to update the two ACS or higher version by installing a patch. There is a bug fixed in this version you indicated which resolves operating problems with Active Directory.

To rule out problems like a bug would be a good advice.
