Hi all

I am currently trying to set up a WLAN using EAP-TLS for authentication. I am using Cisco ACS 4.1 authenticationg users with AD.

At the moment I seem to have no problem with Domain users, they log on through the wired network, obtain a certificate and from then on will authenticate and join the WLAN set up.

However when ever a Domain admin tries this it fails. I get the following message in the ACS failure log; "External user not found".

Any help would be greatfully recieved.

PLease feel free to ask questioned as i know this is a little vauge.

Are the domain admins in a different container than the regular users in AD?  (usually the case) If so, you'll need to confirm that the authentication is checking not just the users container but the administrators container as well.

Of course, if you have a container which contains the users which are authorized then, that will make it a whole lot easier.
