Red Hat - Cisco ACS - Microsoft AD


Sirs,

I'm planning to centralize users and passwords and also create controls for user access to some equipment, for example, Linux Servers, Switches, routers and firewalls. In case of failure of the link between the ACS and AD or equipment to the ACS, this device would use local username and password.

At the moment, my AD structure is a Microsoft, Cisco ACS servers and Linux Standalone. I wish that both linux´s servers and network equipment were authorized by Cisco ACS on the accounts that are in Microsoft AD.

The configuration of the Cisco ACS to use the AD is done and no problems, the network equipment is OK too, but am having difficulties configuring the server for this solution.

Any suggestions?

why would you want to do this??? You have AD, just use LDAP / Kerberos against it. You've not said if you're using TACACS or RADIUS here, if it's radius then I think the pam_radius module works, but I have no idea why you'd want to do this at all.
