I updated Cisco ACS from 3.2 to 4.1. After dealing with some issues, we finally got it installed. Now we are facing this remote agent issue. Is there a whole lot of configuration to do for this agent? Below is part of the instructions. I am not real sure what they want me to do. Where is this Cisco computer? Where do we put the Cisco account? We certainly do not have a DC on our network called Cisco. Is it more advisable to put this on a DC or a member server?
Step 1 Add CISCO workstation.
To satisfy Windows requirements for authentication requests, ACS must specify the Windows
workstation in to which the user is attempting to log. Because ACS cannot determine this information
from authentication requests that AAA clients send, it uses a generic workstation name for all requests.
Use CISCO as the name of the workstation.
In the local domain, and in each trusted domain and child domain that ACS will use to authenticate users,
? A computer account named CISCO exists.
? All users that Windows will authenticate have permission to log in to the computer named CISCO.
For more information, see the Microsoft documentation for your operating system.
Go to external user da---> DB Configuration--->Windows---->Configiure---->Remote agent---> Choose RA from the drop down--->Summit.
Now acs will use that remote agent.
Please rate if that helps
