CSDbSync File at 3gig!!!

I have a CSDbSync file that has grown to 3 Gig on my C: drive. I just installed my ACS software 3 days ago and this is the only file that has grown to this size. What is this file for and can I delete it?

Re: CSDbSync File at 3gig!!!

Hi Michael,

CSDBSync is the service used to synchronize the Cisco Secure ACS database with third-party relational database management system (RDBMS) systems. CSDBSync synchronizes AAA client, AAA server, network device groups (NDGs) and Proxy Table information with data from a table in an external relational database. For information on RDBMS Synchronization, see RDBMS Synchronization.

Please adjust the parameters for setting up log file maintenance: under Working with CSV Logs section:

Thanks,

Hi,

Are you saying CSDBSync.txt file under the log directory is getting that big? If thats the case, its quite unusual. I would check to see if the RDBMS is set up automatic accidentaly on ACS server. Way you can check that is as follows:

System Configuration --> RDBMS Synchronization -->Synchronization Scheduling

Please set it to Manually. If its already set to Manually, then I would collect package.cab file for further analysis. What version of ACS is it ? Whats the platform?

Thanks,

Re: CSDbSync File at 3gig!!!

I have v3.1 and running on a 2000 member server in an NT 4.0 domain. I didn't set anything up in the database are that would replicate or anything like that so it should all be default. All I did was setup the services to logon as an account in my domain with a couple of local policies to act as a system and admin account.

The location of the log file was here:

C:\Program Files\CiscoSecure ACS v3.1\CSDBSync\Logs\CSDbSync 2003-06-07.log

I have since uninstalled ACS and re-installed it on the D: drive so I wouldn't have any problems with the logs filling up and crashing the system.

Re: CSDbSync File at 3gig!!!

For starters, the log file is gone since I uninstalled ACS from C: and reinstalled to D:. Also, the file is too big to open. Win2k said it didn't have enough memory even though there is 1gig of ram in it. I appreciate the help and wish I would have saved it or something so I could have opened it in another view or the command line.

Thanks for the assistance.
