Authenticating Cisco Devices Against Active Directory

Many packets ago, in a network several hops away, I wrote about configuring Cisco devices against FreeRADIUS. Since then, I’ve received many requests for a similar post, but with Active Directory as the backend for authentication. I finally got around to knocking that out this past weekend.

Because Windows is “graphical”, I felt it would be much easier to explain with video than a long drawn-out detailed post. Thus, I put together the following video that shows:

  • how to install IAS on Windows Server 2003,
  • how to configure IAS to support authentication from Cisco devices, and
  • how to configure AAA on IOS

The final video isn’t my best work, but I believe it adequately demonstrates the three things mentioned above, which was my goal. I hope it is helpful.
