ACS - Export Database with passwords

Good morning

 

We have a Cisco ACS version 5.5 and we need to export all the database for a scheduled refresh.

We are facing an issue to export user database with all user passwords.

 

Anyone knows how to perform this and have all user with its respective password appearing in export file?

 

Regards

 

Christian

Re: ACS - Export Database with passwords

Please see the ACS 5.5 export users section

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/net_mgmt/cisco_secure_access_control_system/5-5/user/guide/acsuserguide/my_wkspc.html#16570

 

Admin needs read permissions on the user objects to export.

Other thing is to disable password hash and try it.

 

That said, ACS 5.5 is End of life and End of support product. Please migrate ACS to ISE as soon as possible.

If you are on the process of doing it great.

 

One way to get around this is to create new passwords after migrating and ask users to change it as needed.

You need to communicate to the IT managemet and user community to set the expectation and take it from there.

 

Thanks
