Custom attribute in ACS4.2 patch 17

I have optional custom attribute in my ACS group to be able to enter config mode on ACE: shell:Admin*Admin default-domain

Privilege level 15 is also part of exec  configuration.

Recently I applied patch 17 on ACS 4.2(0) Build 124. Since then I can not login with privilege level 15 into IOS routers/switches.

It looks like IOS box considers this custom attribute as a mandatory now.

Unfortunalety I haven't got logs/debugs from the period before update, when everything was ok.

I guess the problem is somewhere in this argument which goes from ACS to client:

TCS 05/30/2013 12:21:58 I 0043 3244 0xf arg[1] size=32 =shell:Admin*Admin default-domain

Anyone can tell me how this argument with optional parametr should looks like?

Perhaps *shell:Admin*Admin default-domain?

Custom attribute in ACS4.2 patch 17

Hi Petr,

You're running into a defect.

CSCth75577    ACS incorrectly sends optional custom TACACS+ attributes

Symptom:

TACACS+ Authorization from IOS fails if customer attributes (even optional attributes) are configured on the ACS user group.  The login will work but any attributes passed will not be honored.

Conditions:

ACS 4.2.0.124 patch 16

ACS 4.2.1.15 patch 2

Workaround:

Downgrade to a previous ACS patch.

This has been fixed in

ACS 4.2.1.15 patch 3 or later.

Upgrade the ACS to 4.2.1.15 and apply the latest patch 10.

Re: Custom attribute in ACS4.2 patch 17

Hi Jatin,

thanks a lot!

What is the proper way to downgrade to the previous patch? Should I apply Acs-4.2.0.124.15-SW.zip directy over my current installation which contains Patch 17?

Re: Custom attribute in ACS4.2 patch 17

Petr,

we do have a rollback command for acs appliance. However, in case of acs windows it's not recommended to install the previous patch over the existing/latest patch. I'd suggest you to upgrade.

You may download the upgrade image and patch from the below listed link:

http://tools.cisco.com/squish/bF79B

Executable of ACS v4.2.1.15 

ACS-4.2.1.15-BIN-K9.zip

ACS 4.2.1.15.10 cumulative patch

Acs-4.2.1.15.10-SW.zip

NOTE: Please take backup of your current configuration before you proceed with the upgrade.

In case you're not comfortable with the above procedure, please open a TAC case.
