I want to know if it is primordial to use active directory when we work with CISCO Access Control Server (ACS)? I want to configure Active Directory for Cisco ACS; how does it work?
If you are using Cisco ACS for remote logging, it is not a requirement that you configure ACS remote agent to participate in Active Directory authentication. However, it would be advantageous to your end-user logging to have the capability of providing authentication through Active Directory. By configuring Active Directory for Cisco ACS, you would ease the administrative overhead of using Cisco ACS in a Windows-based environment. For further directions and information about configuring Cisco ACS Remote Agent for Windows, Cisco has provided a comprehensive administrator's guide.
