Hi Tiago,    Go to “services

Hi Tiago,

    Go to “services.msc” and stop all the 7 services manually.
    The services to stop would be “CSAdmin”, “CSAuth”, “CSDbSync”, “CSLog”, “CSMon”, “CSRadius”, “CSTacacs”.
    Extract ACS-4.2.0.124.8-SW.zip to ACS_INSTALL_DIR to replace with the new files
    Navigate to ACS_INSTALL_DIR\bin\ from command prompt and execute CSUpdate.exe -upgrade "ACS_INSTALL_DIR\CSDB\upgrade.dat"
    Make sure to put the path in double quotes “” as shown in the above line.
    It will look like this:
    **********************
    C:\Program Files\CiscoSecure ACS v4.2\bin>CSUpdate.exe -upgrade "C:\Program Files\CiscoSecure ACS v4.2\CSDB\upgrade.dat"
    CSUpdate v4.2(0.124)9, Copyright 1997-2009, Cisco Systems Inc
    Database upgrade complete.
    ***********************
    Then go back to “services.msc” and restart all the services one by one.
    Then try to open the ACS GUI and check the status of the patch applied.
    It should show “Release 4.2(0) Build 124 Patch 8”.
