ACS 5.3 SSH Access

I have recently virtualised an ACS 5.3 on ESX 3.5 to trial before upgrading our old 3.3.

Problem is when I come to sync the ACS with a time server I discovered I can't login directly.

I can login to the webinterface with out any problems but not when SSH'd

login as: acsadmin

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

Password:

Access denied

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

Password:

Am I missing something...

Re: ACS 5.3 SSH Access

The username for ssh is admin (unless you specified a different name), also the password can be different. It is based on how you entered it in the installation script.

default superadmin account for web is acsadmin however the two accounts are not synced and neither are the databases. You create an account for GUI access, it doesn't get cli access and vice versa.

Thanks,

ACS 5.3 SSH Access

I had the same issue;

cannot access with admin from initial setup.

But using another - created on console- it works although both seems to have the same config:

...

username admin password hash xxx role admin

username master password hash yyy role admin
