ACS 5.3 with Patch 5 fails on host-key sync

Hi all,

could someone try heple me out here please.

maybe it a limitation but if anyone know anything kindly share it please.

I am trying to add an SFTP repository to Cisco Secure ACS 5.3, I have

defined an SFTP repository but I am unable to sync the host key. The

server I am configuring in the sftp repository is a solaris server which is

used for Cisco NCM. When I sync the host key via the command line in config

mode I receive the error below.

SERVER01/User(config)# repository viewbkp

SERVER01/User(config-Repository)# host-key sync

%host-key add failed

% Failure occurred during request


I can successfully add a repository and sync the host-key of a SLES box so

I know the routine of my actions is correct, I believe the issue is with

ACS and a Solaris server? I would be grateful if someone could advice please.

thanks in advance
