If you are not using Cisco Remote Agent then all the logging will happen on the local hard drive of the applicance and you will not able to do windows authentication as ACS Applicance is not a part of windows domain

Sorry should have replied earlier, but we got this working. The ACS SE sends an LDAP query to the Active Directory server so you don't need any remote agents. It was a bit tricky working out the parameters to input and you have to remember to set up ssl for the transactions, apart from that it works like a dream!!

           Can you explain me what was the configuration parameters which made ACS successfully send LDAP queries to Active directory? I have been trying to do the same in my company, but i am not having success on doing it.
