Cisco ACS 1121 version 5.3 - Logging

Hi There

I'm new to Cisco ACS 5.X. From what I have read, the Cisco ACS can act as a Logging Server. Does this mean, all the syslog messages from all the other ACS and network devices can be stored by ACS? I'm a bit confused on this part.

Lastly, I understand that Cisco ACS has many or maybe 2 instances? When do we use these instance? What is this instance?

Regards,

Ram

Warm regards,

In the distributed deployment, you should specify one acs server as the Logcollector. All other servers send logs to the Logcollecter.

In distributed deployment, each acs server is one instance. So you have one primary instance and multiple secondary instances.
