The thing is, it will work, but it will not be supported if you have issues and you call TAC. Also, depending on how many users will be authenticating to IAS or if you are using IAS for othere radius features, you have to look at the utilization on the box. WCS with multiple wlc, maps and other stuff really might slow the box down. If you are willing to try it, I would suggest putting IAS on first and configuring that, then image the box and in stall WCS and setup that. If you are fine with performance and you have no issues, then you should be good to go with that setup.
