I am trying to install a new ACS server with Radius authentication and here is below I am doing.

Configured the switch with dot1x and assigned all the ports on dot1x except the ports connected to router and the server.

Configured the ACS server with default user group, windows based authentication - I have Active directory in place which I configured all the users on it and want ACS to talk to AD and do the authentication.

Created a test user on ACS which is also on AD

Configured my laptop with dot1x authentication

But the problem is I cannot download the AD database from AD to ACS

This is pretty urgent and really appreciate your help on this

If you have same user in acs, that would be the one who will get authenticated.

On ACS--->Ext database---> unknow user policy---> make sure windows in listed on right box.

You should have domain admin rights for the services running acs, then only it will be able to query AD.
