Please I have a Win 2003 server on my network that i installed ACS on. I created internal user account ,and i can authenticate on my NAS (AAA client).The issue now is how to map to the external user database in win 2003 server DC. Below are my following questions.

1.Who is the AAA server? My Domain controller where I have my external BD?

2.In the AAA server setup page,what will I specify as the AAA server type?(cisco cisco ACS).

3.Do I need to do anything on the domain controller where the external database is?.

4.In the AAA server setup page,after putting a key,where will I put an identical key.

You can configure ACS to forward authentication of users to one or more external user databases. Support for external user databases means that ACS does not require that you create duplicate user entries in the user database. In organizations in which a substantial user database already exists, ACS can leverage the work already invested in building the database without any additional input.
