The CSRadius service will not start automaticly, and after a reboot we have to start the service manually.
The evenlogs says this:
EventID:7000 Source: Service Control Manager.
The Open Procedure for service "CSRadius" in DLL "C:\Program Files\CiscoSecure ACS v4.0\bin\rad_mon.dll" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. The Status code returned is the first DWORD in the attached data.
And then this one:
"The CSRadius service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. "
Our Cisco ACS on Windows 2003 server has been online for more than 9 years (!), but we recently decided to convert it to virtual, so we noticed this problem/bug: CSRadius and CSTacacs services failed to start automatically after reboot.
My solution does not require anything from TAC. I just told Windows not to start these services immediately when it boots but start them a few minutes later. In detail:
From services.msc I changed these services from "Automatic" to "Manual"
Created a bat file with the following commands (in bold):
timeout /t 300 ===> Waits for 300 seconds - it is crucial, otherwise you may still have the same problem
net start CSRadius
timeout /t 10 ===> Waits for 10 seconds - may not be necessary, but just to be safe
net start CSTacacs
Created a scheduled job that runs the bat file every time the server starts
I hope this helps any other "old-timers" like me run into the same problem :)
