Cisco Wireless Networks, ACS, Syslog-Senders, and AD Groups !

L1 Bithead


I've worked out how to recover the User ID, or UID, from a wireless network logon by sending syslog messages from the Cisco Access Control Server, or ACS, to a syslog-sender configured on my firewall.

For wired connections I can recover UID and AD group membership  through the PAN UID Agent and Group Mapping Settings.

But I still can't figure out how to get an AD group membership/mapping for my wireless users.

Wireless users connect via a Cisco wireless controller and their logins are controlled by a Cisco Access Control Server, which uses Windows AD as an external identity store. I have tested a couple of rules and can control access by UID for users connected to the wireless network but I can not use AD User Groups; however, I can use AD User Groups for users connected by wired settings, using standard windows logins, a couple of PAN UID Agents running on VMs, and Device | User Identification | Group Mapping Settings tab | <mapping object | Server Profile & Group Include List >

I'd really appreciate any pointers on how I might get this working; thanks,

Do you get the domain information from the ACS logs or just the user name?
