My company has approximately 500+ devices all across the country (mainly 2801's, 2924's, 2950's, and 2960's) and approx 3 people that have a real idea of how to configure the devices, and 2 or 3 that have a general clue about how to do it. I am in the process of moving all of these devices to use ACS authentication for signing into the device. While I am doing this I am establishing a strong password for the secret password to provide as a backup.
My supervisor would like the cisco device manager to be available to the people that don't have the in depth cli experience. However in my testing, it will only accept the strong password for its authentication, and does not try the ACS server for authentication. Is this possible?
