ACE 4710 FT Unit Management Access

I believe I should be able to get into the management interface IP address of the ACE 4710 FT unit. However, I keep getting this message, "login is temporarily unavailable as startup configuration is being applied; try after some time ..."

I even tried to reload this FT unit, but still unable to get in. Does anybody know the reason why it is behaving this way and how can I gain access to the FT unit.

Thank you.

Re: ACE 4710 FT Unit Management Access

did you try to login as admin ?

There is an open issue right now if you try with a different user.

CSCso00038: login is temporarily unavailable... for any user except "admin"

Yes, I also did try to log in as "admin" but was unsuccessfull.

Re: ACE 4710 FT Unit Management Access

The workaround from the ddts :

Have a non-redundant Admin context or disable running config sync on Admin context

Give that a try.

The ddts above will be fixed in A1.8 which should be out soon.

I did try disabling both running config sync and startup config sync in Admin context of the primary unit, but none of them work.

You just get the login is incorrect when trying with admin.

So seems like a pwd issue.

Re: ACE 4710 FT Unit Management Access

I have dafault username and password (admin -admin) on the ACE but the primary authentication method is TACACS. I was unable to use TACACS to authenticate my credentails so I used the default local admin account. I am certain that I typed in password correctly.

Disable the FT link and try to connect to the backup with your admin username.

If it doesn't work, it is a password issue.

If it does work, upgrade to the upcoming A1.8 and see if the problem persist

Re: ACE 4710 FT Unit Management Access

I disconnected the Crossover cable for FT , but I was not able to get it with local admin account until after I reload the unit. I believe I have to wait for the upcoming A1.8 version. Thank you.
