Re: Integration of CSM with ACS


You could try and check few things

Is the CSM server contained within a Network Device Group in ACS?  
Which shared secret key are you specifying within Common Services' AAA Mode 
Setup?  ACS uses the shared secret defined at the GROUP level rather than the 
one defined at the device level.

Restart daemon manager 

Go to ACS' Shared Profile Components and check to see if the default 
user roles are registered for Ciscoworks Common Services and Cisco Security 
Manager.  Also click on one of the default user roles to see if the permissions 
display or you receive an error.  Check the ACS Reports and Log for TACACS+ 
Administration and Failed Attempts.

Hope this helps.

Integration of CSM with ACS


Just had the exact same problem with CSM 4.1 and ACS 4.2.1, problem was the Windows Firewall on the ACS server preventing the CSM server connecting fully to the HTTP/HTTPS interface of ACS.
