Advantages of ACS 5.4 over 5.3

johnnylingo

Level 5

I've inherited a single instance of ACS Server, version 5.3, running in a VM.  I'd like to add one or two more for redundancy, but before doing so, am considering upgrading to 5.4

I see lots of docs explaining the features in 5.4, but it's been difficult to compare to 5.3.  Any practical advise or tips?

So far best discussion to read about

CSACS-3415 ACS 5.4 NIC Bonding / Teaming possible

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2215970

It seems it only applies for Cisco Integrated Management Interface (CIMC)

step 4. Set the NIC mode to your choice for which ports to use to access the CIMC for server management

Thanks - the first link is exactly what I'm looking for.  NIC teaming in my case is moot since it's running on a VM, but I really like the ability to set date limits on accounts.  Very useful for giving contractors 30-day access.
