I need some help regarding CISCO Nac profiler.

I have 3 cisco nac appliances as below.

1. 3355

2. 3315

3. 3315.

My question is that when I power on these devices CAS is pre-configured in it but I have to install profiler, CAS, CAM.

Got 5 hardware total of cisco which are as follows.

1. CISCO NAC 3355.
2. CISCO NAC 3315
3. CISCO NAC 3315.
4. CISCO Router.
5. CISCO Switch.

I have to installed these devices into a network.

But the confusion is that whom to make profiler server, CAM, CAS and Collector.

Please help me on this if you have a simple document describing about NAC profiler server, NAC profiler collector, CAS, CAM and how to configure these devices.

Please help me on this its urgent

As for your questions, you can install the Profiler, CAM and CAS on any of these devices. Which ever device you make the CAS can act as a collector also. I would suggest making the biggest box you have (3355) the Profiler, and putting CAM/CAS on the 3315s.

As for a simple document, I'm afraid no such thing exists. NAC installations are complex by nature and you really have to have a very good idea of what you're looking to accomplish before you even touch the first piece of hardware.
