Duplicate configuration from one 4.2 SE to another?

Hello,

I am configuring two of these from scratch, is there a way to dump the config from one to another so that they are duplicates (but not same IP, etc).

thanks!

Re: Duplicate configuration from one 4.2 SE to another?

What you have described is possible, but not the "proper way".

Backup ACS1 and restore it into ACS2.

ACS Backup & ACS System Restore

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/cisco_secure_access_control_server_for_windows/4.2/user/guide/SCBasic.html#wp222373

-Correct the local "AAA Server" IP address under the Network Configuration > NDG if enabled...

-Change the Proxy Distribution Table to point to the proper ACS.

If you would like to keep them both running as failover mode:

Note: In ACS failover mode would be consider one active Server receiving the request from all AAA Clients, which are configured for both ACS Servers (but using only the first Server in their AAA Server priority list). The other Server would also be active, but waiting for any requests from the AAA Client.

In the case of trying to setup the above, you could build both servers and configure replication from ACS1 to ACS2.

ACS Internal Database Replication:

Thank you Ansalaza.

Re: Duplicate configuration from one 4.2 SE to another?

Configuring replication between two ACS will look two servers almost similar in configurations and user databases after successful replication with different IP's running in different modes such as primary and secondary ACS.

Replication can be configured in ACS Internal Database Replication option under System Configuration.

Hope this helps

Re: Duplicate configuration from one 4.2 SE to another?

So, if I configure one ACS SE at one site to server its local clients. Then configure a 2nd SE at another site to service those local clients, then set up each others as replication partners, the configs will pretty much be identical anyway?

thanks!
