Answered Question
Aug 9th, 2010

My setup has cisco WLC 5508 & ACS 1120 ver 5.0. How do i authenticate users who access the WLC via the ACS 1120 that users TACACS+. I am able to authenticate users for cisco routers and switches, but when I try to same for WCL, it fails.

Can someone please explain the basic config/steps that needs to be configured on both WLC & ACS.

I have this problem too.

Are you using plain vanilla 5.0 or have any patches installed?

ACS 5.1 has new TACACS related functionaity including support for custom services and attributes. If these are needed for WLC support yo would need ti upgrade.

There may also have been relevant patch fixes since 5.0 timeframe but I can't find any specific relevant CDETS at this point
