Database replication between 2ACSs (V4.0 & V4.1)

Hi All,

1. ACS in production in the N/W:

Release 4.0(1) Build 44

2.Installed recently another ACS serer for backup purposes and currently as no Data :Release 4.1(1) Build 23

Now...

a. Will it be possible to (auto)replicate between these two vesrions.

b.Will some one provide steps/links to configure replication and any required configuration changes to make sure (1) is primary & (2) backup [incase primary fails)

Thanks in advance.

Cisco does not recommend to do replication between different versions of ACS.

I have also seen dissimilar versions to cause problems like database corruption, though it might work in some case.

To be on safer side keep both ACS on same version and only then replicate.

Following link can help you configure replication:

For configuring Backup ACS incase primary fails you need to configure backup server on the AAA client (router,switch) because only AAA client will forward the request to secondary server in case primary fails.
