Cannot login into ACS web interface

Unanswered Question
Sep 6th, 2007

I have recently installed the ACS 4.1 evaluation version on a member server in a domain running Windows 2003 Server Standard with SP2. I have followed the instructions in the documentation that came with the ACS package.

Here are the steps that I have taken:

- Selected "also check the Windows User Database" during the install, but did NOT select the "Grant dial-in permission to user" setting.

- enabled all features to show up on the ACS interface.

- Selected "Restart All" for the service monitoring feature.

- Entered the database encryption password.

- Finished setup. ACS services started.

- Next I configured ACS for member server authentication.

- Added a computer account to Active Directory named CISCO.

- Verified that the server service was running and set to automatic.

- Set LAN Manager to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated"

- Created ACSUser in AD and granted it the "Read all properties" permission for the IT folder in AD.

- Configured ACSuser to "act as part of the OS" and "log on as a service".

- Enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP on ACS server as well as my two local domain controllers.

- DNS & WINS was already configured properly.

- Configured LMHOSTS on the ACS server as follows: xxxxdc #PRE #DOM:CompanyABC "CompanyABC \0x1b #PRE xxxxxxdc #PRE #DOM:CompanyABC "CompanyABC \0x1b #PRE

- Set all seven ACS services to logon as ACSuser.

- Restarted server to make sure that all changes took effect.

I'm trying to log on with my account from AD and I get the "Login Failed...Try Again" error message. I would like to get this issue resolved quickly since it is a time-limited eval.



edit: it appears that the spaces in my LMHOSTS config don't show up properly, but I do have the correct spacing in the file.
