Cisco ACS

hi,

I'm currently looking into configuring acs to provide tacacs authentication. I've not had that much experience with ACS so far, but have put together a basic set up. We are running ACS 4.2.

The question I have is regarding adding network devices. We have in excess of 1000 switches - do all these need to be created as individual network devices in ACS? Or is there a way to import them, say from a list of IP addresses?

If each needs to be added individually, this seems like quite an admin overhead.

How do you guys manage this task? 

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Cisco ACS

Hi Edison,

ACS gives you a feature to do Bulk import of usernames, Network devices etc. through a feature called RDBMS Syncronization. Through this, you would be able to add all the devices, not have to enter each one of them.

You can go to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/cisco_secure_access_control_server_for_windows/4.2/user/guide/A_RDBMS.html to know more about this feature.

Regards,

Kush
