ACS 3.3 to 4.0 upgrade problems


I have a Cisco ACS 3.3 running on a win2k platform server and I need to upgrade to ACS4.0 on win2k.

-3.3 backup and restoring files on web interface 4.0 does not work;

-the same operation using csutils.exe works not (csutil b [...], then csutil - r [...])

-J' installed the new machine with ACS3.3, I imported the data/group/user with csutil, then I installed ACS 4.0 using setup.exe. The result is that the ACS services will not start

Anyone know what I need to do?

Thank you



Hi Antonio,.

-3.3 backup and restoring files on web interface 4.0 do not work.

* It won't work, because in ACS we can back up and restore the database among same versions only of the ACS, also applies to replication.

-the same operation using csutils.exe works not (csutil b [...], then csutil - r [...])

* Answer will be the same as above.

-J' installed the new machine with ACS3.3, I imported the data/group/user with csutil, then I installed ACS 4.0 using setup.exe. The result is that the ACS services do not start.

* Normal this is if you hit a bug, that when we try to upgrade a database of ACS 3.3 (x) xx of ACS 4.0 build we have leak customer spaces AAA and/or servers writing AAA in databaae, and that can cause a problem. But we cannot not be hitting this bug.

How to upgrade:

[1] make sure we follow the path correct upgradation and supported:

[2] then follow following steps upgrade:

Summarizing link above, just run installation of ACS 4.0 on an existing installation of ACS 3.3, and the installation program will ask itself, to save the previous configuration, select Yes at this time.

Let me know if it helps. Please rate if this helps.

Kind regards

  • Cisco Secure ACS 3.3 (1)-> 4.0 upgrade problems (1)

    Hi all!

    I have problems updating my primary ACS since version 3.3-> 4.0

    I always get the following error message, then it does the upgrade:

    "The record of the CiscoSecure ACS seems to be blocked by another application: C:\Program Files\CiscoSecure ACS v3.3.

    Please close all applications... blabla... »

    The thing is, I have improved my ACS backup first, and this upgrade worked like a charm.

    In both cases, both for the primary and backup I do a takeover with Dameware remote, copied the ACS 4 folder on the hard disk of the server and make the upgrade of this folder.

    As I said, the upgrade of backup server worked without a hitch.

    That's what I tried:

    1. I checked that NO application use the 3.3 ACS file and no Explorer window is open on this folder or subfolders.

    I checked using a small program called Filemon.exe from Sysinternals. According to this program, anything accessed said folder.

    I also checked it again by renaming actually ACS 3.3 file once I stop all services of the ACS. I could not rename the folder if the services have been started.

    2. I tried to stop the ACS services first and then make the configuration, got the same error.

    3. I have disabled the antivirus software, got the same error.

    Basically I am at my wits end now...

    However, I have two options:

    1. uninstall ACS 3.3, do a clean install of ACS 4.0 and import the data of all the GBA backup.

    Who would not raise by the primary association with the ACS configuration backup? So I think I will need to go on it later and make changes, if necessary?

    2 make a backup of the ACS 3.3 with csutil b

    Uninstall ACS 3.3, do a clean install of ACS 4.0 and import all the data with csutil - r

    Would this work? I've seen conflicting information here in this forum, some say that it works, the other say it's not.

    I'm a little confused why it worked so well the GBA backup but fails on the primary ACS.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Folder lock message often appears if newspapers located in the directory of the ACS are too big.

    Move the logs of the following directories: -.









    Then try to upgrade.

  • Problems with patching: ACS 5.0 to 5.1 upgrade

    I'm following the instructions to upgrade ACS 5.0 to 5.1

    But I can't get past the first step:

    Step 1 Install the ACS 5.0 patch:

    Issue the following command from the patch CSA in EXEC mode to install the fix for the ACS:

    Install patch ACS patch-name. tar.GPG repository repository-name

    Here is my result:

    / Admin # acs patch install repository 5-0-0-21 - 9.tar.gpg mytftp
    chmod: cannot access at the "* .sh ': no such file or directory".
    Error: Could not open the patch 5-0-0-21 - 9.tar.gpg

    It download the patch via TFTP ok, but cannot install it.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you

    There are problems in 5.0 with using tftp for file transfers that exceed 32 MB. There may be problems with the ftp servers that exceed this limit.

    I recommend to start using the alternative repository type. For example, ftp or a local repository on the server.

  • Firefox is no longer makes type in my fonts - upgrade problem?

    I have my fonts preferences set to display Serif fonts, specifically Times New Roman, and 'Allow pages to use their own fonts' is not checked. However, all pages that I charge rendered in a font without serifs.

    I have a vision that makes lineales problem difficult to read, so I need to be able to specify my fonts. Any suggestions? This problem started with my upgrade to v. 41.0.1 on Mac only.

    I'm not very familiar with the Mac fonts. When you say that you have selected 'Times' do you mean that the full name is "Times"? You have better luck with "Times New Roman"?

My office has a HP mother 2B3A and i7 - 5820 k and HaswellE chipset. The memory of the plant is of Samsung brand with configuration DDR4-2133.

    When I replaced the memory of samsung (trademark) with G.SKILL ones, the computer cannot start with black screen. When I've switched back to factory memory, the computer is back to normal.

    That means G.SKILL RIPJAWS V 16 GB memoryis is not compatible with this HP computer motherboard? or upgrade the BIOS can solve this problem? or do I return these memory and get 8 GB * 2 instead? Your comments are much appreciated.

  • Portege 7020 bios upgrade problem.

    I have a Portege 7020 CT with docking station. For a year and a half I can't update my bios. The problem is that when starting the floppy (as in instructions) drive my docking station is almost all (floppy drive) is turned off. Or I couldn't upgrade through Windows Millennium Edition.
    Someone at - it had similar problems? And you have any ideas to solve the problem?


    as far as I know, you need to remove your Portege. Plug the AC and connect the floppy drive. Laptop must be in boot mode and not recovery mode, and remove any PC cards.

    Then insert the prepared BIOS disc (create it as described in the manual) and boot from the floppy.

    Then it should work!

    Try and keep me posted.


    PS: your BIOS is available at support & downloads - download BIOS

    Your BIOS is available in version 8.10

  • Vista upgrade problem

    I bought a laptop at the end of week of curries and can't seem to find out how to update like curries is not on modus link site. can anyone help?

    Hi guys

    I hope you checked this topic.
    There are some users who have had problems with the upgrade, but it was already resolved.

    But in my opinion if you credit card authorization failed it s is not a problem of Toshiba.

  • RAM upgrade problem: Flash the BIOS? or upgrade the processor?

    Hi, I jumped in with both feet and now need help to get out me!

    I have a desktop PC HP Pavilion Elite HPE-470uk who becomes a bit slow (processor card here After you have added a bluray player that I noticed that it's getting a bit slow so thought I would add little RAM.

    I bought a few Hyper X8GB of HyperXbeast 1600hhz, slipped in and the PC did nothing but to turn on and off several times. I checked the two sticks and they both do it. I then (plow in front) checked what memory, the processor can handle and discovered "The Intel® Core™ i3 - 5xx / Intel® Core™ i3-21xx processors handle memory DDR3 1066/1333 MHz" by

    After a discussion on another forum, that it has been suggested that I have updated the BIOS because it can allow the processor to manage memory 1600 mhz, but I don't know where to start on this or what version to selected download. I'd appreciate any help you can offer on this.

    The other way, that I can see is to update the processor itself. I thought of nothing too fancy just an i5 because it will allow me to run 3d blurays and should allow me to run some apps at the same time. After reading this it seems too complicated. Is it really just a matter of taking off the fan, declipsant the old processor, nine droping in and then put on some cooling stick stuff?

    Or should I just return the memory and get good memory?

    See you soon


    Here are the specifications of original factory for your desktop HP Pavilion Elite HPE-470uk and its card mother MS-7613 (Iona-GL8E). Based on these specifications, this model can support up to 16 GB (4 GB x 4 DIMMs) as follows:

    Dual channel memory architecture
    Four DDR3 DIMM sockets (240 pin)
    PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333)
    PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066)
    Memory non - ECC, unbuffered
    Supports up to 16 GB on 64 bit computers

    In addition, this model can support the following Intel processors;

    Maximum frequency of the processor of the heart < = 2.93GHz
    Intel Core i7 - 8xx (Lynnfield core)
    Intel Core i5 - 7xx (Lynnfield core)
    Intel Core i5 - 6xx (Clarkdale core)
    Intel Core i3 - 5xx (Clarkdale core)

    If you do not have to worry about the update of the BIOS, there is no updates available for your computer BIOS. Honestly, I return the incorrect memory and upgrade to a minimum of 8 GB of RAM. Then, if it solves all your problems, you could also upgrade the processor.

    As the computer is nearly 4 years old, you can consider a factory HP restore to return the computer to a facoty as State. In many cases, it returns original full speed of the computer. The reason why this helps, because the BONE is swollen and clogged over time.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

  • Satellite A350 - cannot order the Win 7 Upgrade - problem of credit card

    To the right,.

    I bought a laptop, A350, in 2009 and ordered to Windows 7 using the program, but I couldn't get anything from anywhere until today.

    Recently, I asked the delivery during 2 months nothing delivered, but the team behind this program cancelled my order. (Order No.: 4440058036)

    Day before yesterday, I ordered again (order No.: 4440124899) but this time another email was sent on my credit card because they could not charge the card so that they are not able to send the Windows 7 upgrade.
    In addition, it is mentioned to get in touch with the service the customer in Turkey, but the phone number provided on the page does not work.
    I don't know that my credit card works because I order a lot of stuff from other Web sites in the world.

    Almost 3 months ago, I still don't know where to contact them and how to order the Windows 7 upgrade.

    I hope that during the purchase of computer A350 laptop brand TOSHIBA, but today I am considering my decision isn't true at all.

    Please tell us how to deal with which to order Windows 7 upgrade as announced at the sale of portable for the A350.

    Kind regards


    For me, it looks like there are some problems with the credit card.
    Who knows what makes you wrong maybe that you have entered the right number or missed something maybe, there is another problem with your credit card
    In my opinion, you should get in touch with your Bank and should ask what could be the problem

    Here are the other Toshiba page where you could ask a support team for assistance if a problem with Win 7 upgrade kit would appear.

  • Satellite C660 PSC1JE - 8 GB RAM upgrade problems

    Fellow owners of Toshiba,

    I have a Satellite C660-PSC1JE-00Y00XHU with 3 GB RAM (1 + 2) I want to go to 8 GB.

    I went out and bought 2 x 4 GB, but so far no of the below those worked (the computer restarts or stop):
    I was not to mix memories above, purchased two of each. Certainly, these operate at higher MHz and they aren't memories KIT, so that may be the issue.

    According to the specifications of the laptop (SEE attachment), I should be able to move to 8 GB.
    I found the following thread here, but it is not help me solve this problem:

    I found my memories at Intel:
    Two of my memories have a value of 'B' in the R/C column, but what that means? I ask, it is because in the list, there are two 4 GB memory listed thus:
    But these memories have a 'F' in R/C column. Is that mean that they didn't work with the tested chipset?

    I found a KIT on amazon, where PSC1JE is registered:
    But on the important information of the product section, only C655 notebooks are listed.

    Another thing I noticed, is that support for DDR3 frequency on my motherboard is only 533 MHz, but the memories that came with the laptop are 666,7 MHz. Does that mean I shouldn't buy same PC3-10600 memory, since it would not even capable of running at full speed?

    What I absolutely have to buy KIT or can I go out with two sticks of Samsung 4 GB?

    I am at a loss. Can someone point me in the direction of someone who can check what memory modules I need in order to have 8 GB in my notebook?

    Thank you


    I'm looking to upgrade my 8 GB RAM. I bought 2 x 4 GB of RAM, but I get a blue screen on startup, so I went back to them. Currently looking for something that works. Did you find something that works well with your laptop?
