Cisco ACS 4.2 huge logs are getting logged

Hi All,

We are using a cisco ACS 4.2 in our network for wireless and VPN client authenticantion.

Recently we are getting huge logs from ACS continously to RA server  when the users are gets Authenticate . below is the error which Message which we have  got from the ACS server .

08/13/2012,19:34:32,Authen   failed,asthagi,Default Group,00-26-ff-79-b5-5c,External DB user invalid or   bad password,,,29,10.101.254.27,

Due to this if the client's accounts will locked out if they tried more than 3 times.

1. All the clients are getting authenticated via the default group.

2. Only few users are facing the issue not all the users.

3. ACS version is 4.2 and RA version is 4.2.0

Kindly we request you to help on this to solve the same also avoid getting the huge logs in the RA server.

Re: Cisco ACS 4.2 huge logs are getting logged

Jaya: isRA used for logging only or used for authentication?

Logs are straightforward, the password provided for the username is not correct.

It seems the users updated their password on the AD but forgot to change the password on their vpn configuration.

Let them update the vpn configuration with the correct password things should be fine.

Cisco ACS 4.2 huge logs are getting logged

Thanks a lot Amjad,

We have checked the same and it seems to be the paswords updated in all the neccessary places , so, We had a reload once after we stoped all the services . post reload we are not observing the same issue . But not sure how it is working fine now ,

Can you please help us to understand what could be the root cause in this case ? .

Jaya:
good that it is now working.

I can't guess the root cause but you make sure that both ACS and RA on same version with same patch level. Make sure to have latest patch applied to both.
