restore configuration on ACS: failure occured during request

Hello,

When I want to load a configuration file on my ACS 5.1 appliance, I see in my ftp server that the file is properly sent to the ACS server, but I get the error below and the configuration is not loaded. Any idea? ftp connection is fine.

thx Karien

command:

appliance/admin# restore lab.tar.gpg repository karien application acs
Restore requires a restart of application services. Continue? (yes/no) [yes] ? yes
% Failure occurred during request

If you are trying to restore an ACS backup the syntax is:

# acs restore repository

Hello Javier,

I tried again with your syntax, activating some debugging and the same error

any idea?

thx Karien

the backup file is 32 MB, can this be related ?

thx Karien

How was the backup created?

The file size at 32MB or larger would be an issue if you are using a TFTP repository.

Hello Javier,

I have the same error both when I created the backup by ftp or tftp.

thanks a lot Karien

Hello,


One day later, and after clearing the logs (only 400K), the restore via ftp does work now.

See debugging below. However, I still don't know why it did not work before.

Anybody already faced this issue before ?  My backup file is 33,8M

thx Karien
