I am new to ACS and need to setup the following requirement:


1) ACS to authenticate wireless user with window AD.

2) After successfully connected to the wireless, the user will need to use remote-access VPN with the ASA.

3) The end-user will have only 1 common username but different password.


eg:

username: cisco password: cisco for wireless.

username: cisco password: 1234 for VPN.


Can ACS suppport this, if yes how can it be done? For do I need 2 set of ACS?

Yes, acs should work fine as per your need.


In ACS , we have a feature called NAP "network access profile" where in we can set the condition based on source ip or attributes that , let say if request comes from wireless device acs will forward that to AD and if request comes from VPN acs will forward to it diff Database.


Basically we would need to use two database in acs.
