Unanswered Question
Nov 12th, 2009

Hello, I am looking into the ability to Use Active directory to Login to the wism controllers. I have been looking on Cisco website and It does not seem to be supported. It seems Like you can use LDAP to query the Controllers for credientials. However, LDAP is only supported if the LDAP server is set up to return a clear-text password. My controllers are version 4.2.185 we cant upgrade at this time we have legacy 1020AP. Can AD be Used?

I have this problem too.

The controllers can only talk directly to AD through LDAP. The other option to use AD is to go trough a Radius server. Since you have Windows servers why not just enable IAS?
