Difference between ACS Administrator account and ACS user account?

Does an ACS administrator by default have full rights to every device it manages?

I thought ACS administator accounts and user accounts were different.

I have an acs admin account called admin_1. then i created another user account called admin_1 (for switch/router access)

when i set the password for admin_1(user accounts), when i tried to login into the switch it wouldn't take. It would only take the password set for the ACS admin account.

Is this by design?

Re: Difference between ACS Administrator account and ACS user ac

My understanding was that this is not the case, Ive just tested my installation again to make double sure and the user accounts and the admin accounts are clearly seperated

The RADIUS server does not make use of the Admin user database.
