Radiator and user account in Win 2003

Posted on 2005-04-10

I install a Radiator in Window 2003. I want to authenticate user login to my cisco network devices in the same network. How can I create and store the user accounts as simple as possible? Should I just use flat file or set up Active Directory/domain controller in Windows 2003?
As I will set up 2 Window 2003 for authentication, I also want to make them as master and slave so that the user accounts can be synchronized.
Then what is the way to do the authentication?

    I don't know about Radiator..  but for authentication and ease of management, you should promote the server to a DC and setup Active Directory.  This is the proper way to go about setting up a domain.  As for the second server, it will also be a Domain Controller (if you wish) and be equal in almost all respects to your original DC.  (no such thing as Master / Slave in a W2K domain environment)

    I will post the directions in a bit..

    How do I install Active Directory on my Windows Server 2003 server?

    When it asks if you wish to setup DNS, do so...  AC cannot run without DNS being installed..
