Migrate from ACS 3.3.2 SE to 4.2.1 for Windows

Hi all


I know that the two platforms/versions are dinosaurs and we should be upgraded to something more recent like ACS 5.x.  However, I am consultant and is not part of the decision to make this migration.  I've just loaded to run.  The customer going to ISE and purchased in one of their regions.  However, this specific pair of ACS servers provide services GANYMEDE + then they will be around for some time.


I'm contemplating how to for migration.  There are about 30 local users and more than 2000 devices.  There is integration of ads through a pair of remote agents.  We want to entry a sweet/new configuration as opposed to a full backup and restore so cleaning may occur on the current arrangements of 8-10 years.  So, the best-case scenario is that I have set up new devices (v4.2.1) by hand and import users and network devices.

If I wanted to do, how I'd go to export only the devices and users from the 3.3.2 engine solution?

I thought to reproduce the current 3.3.2 install on a v3.3.2 to install windows then upgrading the windows temp install to 4.2.1 and replication only users and groups to the 4.2.1 new platform but I have access to old media.

Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thank you.


The best would be to install v3.3.2, reproduce the configuration and it in path/procedure to upgrade next since you do not have access to OLD media. You can import users and devices using the RDBMS feature.

To export devices network of ACS 3.3.2 engine solution. Go to network setup > Search > maintains the search that is default parameter to search the entire. Press search. There will be a 'Download' option that will appear in the left corner of the search results. Click on save this list.

This list will include,


-IP address


-Name NDG (if applicable)

NOTE: This will not contain customer AAA Shared Secret keys have

Once the devices are exported, you can import this file to ACS for windows.


You may not be able to export the ACS SE users. You may need to manually create with the new passwords.

Kind regards

    Konda, you should check the release notes for the target version, where you should find some information about the migration from versions older. In your case check 11 g R1 ( Release Notes and look for issues on migration. You can then access information on Certification that the migration is possible.

    And before you buy Windows 7 read and check to see if your computer is able to use Windows 7 to its best advantage:

    Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.

    If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.

  • stand-alone server from acs 2008 available software?

    I use acs 4.2 on a windows 2003 server sp2 in my current network. The network has been replaced and I'm a software/windows 2008 Server and build the application. I'm a bit confused as too the available software. The acs software only 5.4 I see is for the appliance and vmware. Is this software available for stand-alone servers is not end of life?  Or can I use acs 4.2 on the stand-alone server and update all the way to 5.4. I think they would have a base at one of the levels 5.x package... Any information would be appreciated


    I would like to inform you about the following things:

    1 ACS 5.x cannot be installed on the server of widnows as ACS 4.x

    2 ACS 5.x cannot be installed on the vmware (Linux-based) or as a device.

    3 ACS 4.x is a box of windows-based and ACS 5.x is a device based on linux/VMware

    4. you can configure vmware or a device such as a stand alone ACS5.x box.

    5 ACS is available up to now and is still not end of life.

    6. you can upgrade the ACS to, however it is not compatible with windows 2008 r2 box.

    7. you is impossible to pass the ACS ACS 5.4 4.2, you can buy seprate for ACS 5.4 license and then you can migrate the database from 4.2 to 5.4

  • migration from Outlook Express loses everything after 'group '.

    I migrated from Outlook Express to Thunderbird on XP, then moved the files to Windows 8.
    I had a 'group' in my OE address book. Nothing after that that group name (which began with an H) has been migrated to the new address book. In other words, I lost everything after H.

    I also have these contacts on Gmail. Y at - it an easy way recover of EO (I guess I could remove the Group and start over, but it's a long process and I'm afraid to lose the mail I already sent on tuberculosis), or y at - it an easy way to get from gmail?

    Thank you.


    There are several solutions to your problem, which is the best for you which I do not pretend to know.

    There is the possibility of simply to copy the WAB to outlook express for Windows 7 and double click it to him bringing in the windows contacts folder. I have instructions here http://thunderbirdtweaks.blogspot.com.au/2013/12/windows-contacts.html that include the Windows Contacts folder in Thunderbird.

    Alternatively, you can install one of the Add-ons to gmail contact sync. I use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/google-contacts

    Hello luckyduck, as is the case with xmarks too, the overwhelming majority of the addons is not created by mozilla, but by independent third-party developers. so if you want to know if it is planned an extension for firefox on android porting or have other requests for features, please communicate with the developers involved directly in order to get a better answer. Thank you for your understanding!

  • After the installation of 12.0, I get popups and migration from the lower left of my screen that will heal all the ads block settings.

    Whenever I visit a new Web site I can wait for one of my first 'clicks' to open a new window with something like a Quibids announcement or a site with audio asking me to take a survey vaguely regarding the site I'm. There is also an ad in the migration of the lower-left corner of my screen that no amount of effort will get rid of. It didn't happen until last week when I downloaded the latest version of Firefox. My OS is Windows 7 on a Toshiba laptop. I connect with a hotspot from Verizon at home only. I scan all emails before downloading from the server PC of the population. I ran most of Windows and a couple of free virus programs did a full scan nothing helps. This problem does not exist when I navigate with Windows Explorer.

    Sometimes a problem with Firefox can be a result of malware installed on your computer, you may not be aware of.

    You can try these free programs to search for malicious software that work with your existing anti-virus software:

    Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP, if you do not already have one.

    Probably not with a 2d gen i5 processor, but it does not matter. It will support an SSD SATA-III, even if the SSD transfer is limited to SATA-II. It will always be very, very fast and you will never see no practical difference. Download the SSD, you will not be sorry. Let us know if you need help most.

  • Move photos on external hard drive after migrating from iPhoto to Photos

    I have a lot of photos and have you run out of space on my MacBook.  After doing some reading, I discovered that I should be bale to move my library to an external hard drive, then the point of Photos to run from the external hard drive.

    I have recently updated to El Capitan, and as part of this upgrade that my photos have been migrated from iPhoto to the Photos.  I just checked the current location of my library and I found two.  One is named Photo library and which resembles the pictures one use which makes sense.  However, I also have a file called iPhoto library and it is listed as a library migrated under file type.

    My question is, when I copy my pictures on the external hard drive also I copy the migrated thus iPhoto library?

    My question is, when I copy my pictures on the external hard drive also I copy the migrated thus iPhoto library?

    Yes, if you want to free up your internal disk storage moving two libraries of the iPhoto library you have migrated your external drive and the new library of Photos.

    The two libraries share the storage for the original images and previews.  As long as one of the libraries is always on the internal disk and using storage, storage is not released: see: Photos saves disk space to share images with your iPhoto or Aperture - Apple Support libraries

    Drag the two libraries to your external drive, then double click the pictures library to open it in photos and test it. Once you are convinced that the copied library works well, you can delete the original in the internal drive.  Do the same for the copied iPhoto Library if you have installed iPhoto.
