CWLMS 3.2 ACS 5.x


CWLMS Guide (Installing and Getting Started With CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution 3.2) says that CW support integration with ACS 5.x for authentication only. If I would like to integrate them, could I have a mixture enviroment to authentication/authorization, I mean, ACS authenticating users and CW Local DB authorizating them ???

What will be the implications of that implementation?

Could I assign the predefined roles in CW to users?

Could I have a CW "super user" like in Cw/ACS 4.x integrations?

How could I manage (administrative privileges) the server in order to add/edit/delete devices, jobs, reports, etc?

Thanks for your comments,

Re: CWLMS 3.2 ACS 5.x

It is perfectly acceptable to use ACS 5.x for authentication and the local LMS database for authorization.  In fact, this is the only thing you can do with ACS 5.x.  ACS 5.x will simply be a TACACS+ server.  For each user that needs LMS access, you will create an account for them in LMS with the appropriate role definitions.  In LMS 4.0, you can do fully customized roles within LMS itself without needing an external authorization database like ACS.
