IAS and Cisco Switches RADIUS authentication using Active Directory

We are recently deploying  IAS on W2K3 to authenticate users via RADIUS, using the Active Directory credentials. We manage to authenticate Juniper Devices and some Cisco Routers, however, i'm having some issues with the Cisco Switches. The switches are running IOS 12.2 IOS. The think is after add the Cisco AV-Pair and the Vendor type settings for shell:priv-lvl=15, i can't get the user to go right away to the enable mode, then i have to enter the enable secret password configured locally.

Is there a way or work around about this? I have read a previous thread and it says it is not possible..

I would make sure that the switch is configured to do authorization against the RADIUS server to start.  Authentication will get the usernames and passwords to work, but authorization needs to be present in order to assign privilege levels.
