Hi all,

I have a DHCP server and I am going to install a new ACS server to handle authentication so when a user connects to the network it will be authenticated by the ACS server and after that the DCHP server will assign an IP address to the user. Is there any doc that shows how to configure the ACS to ask the DHCP server for the IP address of the user? or how to configure the 2 servers to work together?

If the ACS will only be used for authentication of users and not as DHCP server then there is no need for ACS to ask DHCP server for IP address. The client itself can be configured to take IP address from the DHCP server and only the authentication request should be served by the ACS.
