    To facilitate communication between Prime Infrastructure and the ACS View Server and to access the ACS View Server tab, you must add a view server with credentials.

    Note  Prime Infrastructure only supports ACS View Server 5.1 or later.


    To configure the ACS View Server Credentials, follow these steps:

    Step 1 Choose Design > External Management > ACS View Servers. ( In old version this can be configured under configure > add ACS View Server- like a below listed screen shot)

    Step 2 Enter the port number of the ACS View Server you are adding. (Some ACS View Servers do not allow you to change the port on which HTTPS runs.)



    Step 3 Enter the password that was established on the ACS View Server. Confirm the password.

    Step 4 Specify the time in seconds after which the authentication request times out and a retransmission is attempted by the controller. (This is again added in the newer version)

    Step 5 Specify the number of retries to be attempted.

    Step 6 Click Save.

    Step 7 On the ACS View Server, all we need the below listed command from the CLI and an admin account.

              "acs config-web-interface view enable"

    Step 8 The account, we'll use to integrate PI with ACS view server should have admin rights. You may use the default acsadmin account.
