Cisco ACS propagation to secondaries in cluster

I recently added some secondaries into a TACACS cluster. I was under the impression that most everything would be propagated from the primary to the secondaries. Some items did - like the network devices and AAA clients, root CA, user, LDAP, AD configuration. But other things like Access Policies and Policy Elements did not. Does anyone know why these might not have propagated to the secondaries?

In earlier versions - long ago - of ACS you could select what you did or did not want propagated. But I no longer see that in 5.4 code.

Everything apart from device-specific certificates should replicate to the secondaries. If you force replication to the secondaries each box should pull everything from the primary.

You're right! The issue turns out to be browser-related. And interestingly it was not consistent. Using the same browser you could see the replicated policies on one ACS secondary and not another. AND those two secondaries were at the same code and patch revisions. Changing to Chrome let me see the replicated policy information although later I realized there are tech notes which specify you should use Explorer or an earlier version of Mozilla Firefox. Now I know. Thank you.
