Re: NAC replacement procedure

Since there seems to be no method of performing a CLI backup on the 3315 appliance, we must go the route of the workaround. This may seem a bit out there, but is the only way that I can see a backup being created without using the WebGUI.

First and foremost, do you have any IP access to the NAC appliance?

If not, quit reading and contact TAC.

If you have setup backups in the past, they are stored in the /guest/bakcups directory and can be transferred via FTP, SFTP, etc..

If not, then download an upgrade file that is newer than the release you are running (if you are running the latest release, download the upgrade file to get to that release). In this case, v2.1.  Transfer the file to your repository and initiate the upgrade on the NAC Guest server.


Note Before the 2.1 upgrade, a backup snapshot of the existing 1.x or 2.0.x database is automatically created and stored in the /guest.bak directory. In the event of an upgrade failure, Cisco recommends making a local backup of this directory.

Otherwise, I am at a loss on this issue.
