In a previous post I showed how I installed ACS in VBox. The reason I wanted it in VBox was so I could add it to GNS3 topology as a host. GNS uses first NIC in of a VM as a “management” NIC and adds a second NIC for linking within the topology. ACS supports only single NIC (even the hardware appliance that comes with 4 NICs, has 3 of them disabled). “Runtime” is the process that listens to and processes TACACS and RADIUS requests. It gets “bound” to the IP addresses configured during the initial setup. When ACS is added to GNS and second NIC installed and configured, the "runtime" still listens only on the first NICs IP address. Configuring the second NIC, disabling the first one and restarting ACS application results in "runtime" not starting at all. To get around that, I needed to do the following at the ACS’s console once ACS was added to GNS as a VBox host: 1. Configure second NIC with the same IP address as the first one # configure term
