ACS Backup Issue


We have an ACS server and I am trying to backup using SFTP configured on the ACS but the backup fails and with the below error, however the connection from the ACS to the SFTP server is running fine and I am able to telnet on port 22 from the ACS server.

Below are the logs from the ACS:

Can you SFTP to the CentOS host from any other host within your network?

Are you sure you can "telnet" to port 22?  Port 22 is the default port for ssh and telnet will not talk SSH.

The connection is proper but the db size is full. System first takes a backup and keeps it on db and then transfers it using ftp/sftp whatever mode you have configured.

free some size in viewdba nd you will be good :)

Thanks Tushar...this is interesting I thought once we configure the NFS or FTP it will transfer the file to it...but it looks like what you said is true...the /opt database keeps going up and down.

I have worked with CISCO TAC for 3 years and was only dealing with ACS and ISE. This is a pretty dominant issue. Few of the issues pertaining to OPT increasing frequently were resolved in 5.3 patch 6. But at the end of the day /opt has to increase by time.
Follow best practices like storing data for not more than 3 months. Setup syslog to avoid loss of logs if any time /opt is full and a TAC engineer does an rm -f to those logs.
