Shared Secret Mismatch in DB Replication

Implementing Database Replication in two Cisco ACS SE 1113, and the ACS Version is 4.2.0.124. It failed with an error message "Shared Scret Mismatch", however it is same on both boxes. Any idea what would be the problem?

Hi,

We need to clear out 127 IP from appliance. Please refer to this link,

You need to install backup from appliance on ACS windows.

Re: Shared Secret Mismatch in DB Replication

Because you need to enter each value twice its very easy to make mistakes.

Cut and paste isnt always reliable either.

It can be confusing but each ACS needs a secret for itself and the other ACS.

Re: Shared Secret Mismatch in DB Replication

Hi,

This happens because of two reasons:

1].when we have different keys for AAA servers on primary and secondary ACS.

The primary server must be configured as an AAA server and must have a key.

The secondary server must have the primary server configured as an AAA

server and its key for the primary server must match the primary servers own

key. The shared secret key should be same on the both the ACS's.

Also, please manually type the secret key, sometimes when we copy and paste the key it copies the HTML character and that could be an issue.

2.] If you see any server with this ip address 127.0.0.1.

you may visit the below suggested ULR:

Re: Shared Secret Mismatch in DB Replication

I exactly have followed the steps given in the document, and the password value on both side is match. However I have found a server "Self" with IP Address 127.0.0.1 on both ACS.

I am still getting same error.
