CS-Mars and AAA ACS - fail

I try to setup a CS-Mars to AAA Cisco ACS

I setup the mars to RADIUS(Cisco VPN 3000/ASA/PIX 7.x+) with shared secret 1234

Cisco ACS hostname: cis04ba1

CS-Mars hostname: mars01ba1

I got this error logs in Failed Attempts

Re: CS-Mars and AAA ACS - fail

Not sure which resources you used to configure this, but this looks like Cisco ACS server, so "Generic AAA server" will cause us to parse logs from this device wrong on MARS.

Follow this guide to add the ACS server to MARS:

There is also a section in here on bootstrapping your ACS for MARS:

Make sure you have done both the above. You might even want to start over with everything you have done thus far.
