I just installed and configured ACS on window 2003 server on my network. The next task is to integrate the user database in my DC with the ACS. I need you to tell me in steps what else that need to be done.The documentaion is not specific.

(I heard about 'remote agent' please what is this,and is it required?)

Have a look at this document which walks you through setting up the ACS to use groups defined within your AD infrastructure.

From memory the remote agent is needed when your ACS server is not part of the Windows domain. So if you have an ACS hardware applicane you need a remote agent installed on a domain controller.

If you are using the ACS software and it is on a server running windows then just make sure the server is part of the domain and then you don't need the remote agent.
