I have several Cisco 2950/2960 switches, and a Windows Server 2k3 Domain Controller running IAS. Could someone please give me a step by step procedure to implement Active Directory authentication on these switches?

It would be great if I could give one AD group Level 1 access and another group Level 15 access.

Thanks in advance!

Here's part of it. Setup IAS Server, and setup AAA on the switches. This is the easy part.

Privilege levels gets a little more complicated. You  have to define the commands that a lower-level access group can use, then assign an cisco-av-pair <level> in Radius to the users.

Hi lrmoore,
Thanks for your help. I've followed the instructions on blindhog.net, but I get access denied every time. Any ideas?

Ok figured it out. The user in Active Directory must have Remote Access Permission (Dial-in or VPN) in the Dial-In tab set to Allow access.

Now i've got to figure out the Level 15 vs Level 1 settings :-)
