Hi, Do we require a license to use ACS Server as we have already purchased multiple ASA 5505 with license. I want to make AAA Server. Please advice!!!

I have this problem too.

ACS is a separate licensed product from Cisco - either you buy a standalone ACS device or you purchase the software.

If you mean can you configure aaa on your ASA devices without extra licenses then yes you can.

Thanks!! As I know, for AAA Server we need to have installed ACS software on a Server. Now Do we require a license in this case???

Yes you need a license for ACS software on the server and when you load the software it should ask your for a license key.

ACS for Windows never asks for a license key. If thats the flavor your are going for. But you need to purchase it. As on CCO you can only get the trial version. The Full version can only be obtained, if you have purchased it.
