Does anyone have experience running Microsoft's Internet Authentication Service (RADIUS) on Windows 2000 Server?  I'm looking to implement a RADIUS server to connect some Cisco equipment back into Active Directory for authentication.  The protocol itself looks very slim, so I'm hoping I can add it onto my DCs without too much resource usage.  Any issues with stability?

No, I was just wondering about the performance and stability of IAS.  Since I may be installing it on my DCs, I want to be confident in its stability.  Have you noticed it burdening your servers at all, resource-wise?  It doesn't seem like there's much to IAS, and our user base is pretty small, so I don't think this will be a problem.

It's very light, I did not notice any performance loss..

My server is a DC running Exchange back-end, and hosting some files.. it is very stable, and has been working flawlessly for 2 years.
