ACS 5.3 Secondary instance logs missing

Hi Folks,

I have a dual appliance set up; with a distributed deployment. I am using my primary box as the log collector and I noticed today that if I point a networking device at my secondary instance for authentications nothing shows up in the logs anyway, despite the authentication being successful.

I was under the impression that any authentication requests to either the primary or secondary instance should be forwarded to the designated log collector and be viewable in the monitoring & reports viewer, is this not the case?

Regards

Ciaran

Ciaran,

Are these nodes on the same subnet and is there a firewall configured between them? Also are they on the same patch level? Are these virtual machines or appliances?

Thanks

Re: ACS 5.3 Secondary instance logs missing

Thanks guys, managed to get to the bottom of this. The rule updates I had requested were incorrectly implemented on one of the firewalls so the messages were being blocked.

Thanks again

Re: ACS 5.3 Secondary instance logs missing

Can you see the secondary up and reachable from the primary? Do configuration changes to the primary reflected successfully on the secondary?

Hi,

There is an operation where you can perform backups of your monitoring data. Please use this guide as a reference:
