Dear Massimiliano,

Thanks for your reply but i am using ACS Solution Engine. I think this procedure is not applicable for the ACS SE.

Thanks & Regards,

ACS SE needs Remote Agent to get authentication with AD.

Remote Agent Installation:

Install remote agent on AD / member server of an AD.

During installation of an Remote Agent, enable Authentication.

Supply the appliance IP Address.

Configuration in Appliance:

Add the Remote Agent machine IP under Network Configuration -> Remote Agent.

External user DB->Database Configuration->Windows Remote Agent Selection->select Remote Agent Ip

External user DB->Database Configuration->Windows Authentication Configuration->add AD domain

Do Group mapping

Under "Unknown User Policy" select AD to the selected database list.

Add users in the AD and assign the necessary user properties.

I hope this will help you.
