Using AD exclusively to authenticate over WPA

Unanswered Question
Feb 9th, 2010

This is more of a curiousity question than anything.  Is there a way to bypass ACS and authenticate wireless clients using AD?  We run a WLC 4400 with version and I was just wondering.

I have this problem too.

You could use IAS (Server 2003) / NPS (Server 2008) on the windows server to auth users.  These are j the inbuilt radius services provided in the windows install natively.

I can't speak for WLC firmware 4.X but we've used 5.X and 6.X.  We told the ACS to pass all authentication to the AD.  No issues there.
