Is this for ACS Solution Engine or ACS for windows?

I have 1121 ACS Engine with ACS version 5.1. I'm trying to integrate it to AD also. But I think the process for 5.1 is different with 4.x. Has someone tried this already? By the way I am trying to setup TACACS+ device access with AD as the user database.

I have already synced the NTP of the ACS and AD and I have already added the AD to the ACS successfully with entering the AD domain and admin user account. I have also added a test AAA client which is a Cisco switch. I have created a local user on the ACS and it works when I access the switch. But when I enter a user that is stored in the AD, it's not working. Are there any other configurations that I need to do to make this work?

Hope someone can help.
