Hello experts,

I was recently asked a question. We will be installing some windows servers in a DMZ, and non will be joined to a domain. Our question is, can we setup RADIUS authentication for accessing the server rather than creating admin accounts on all servers repeatedly. Our goal would be to create one admin account, and then use this to point the servers at a RADIUS server to authenticate users who are allowed to access.

That depends on how you are accessing the servers. It sounds like what you are asking for is what you get when you have a domain. In order to do that, you need to have a domain. ;-) You can have a separate forest/domain in the DMZ.

Yes, this is what I proposed when they asked me about this. However, these are network guys, and they are used to having RADIUS authenticate the logins for the network devices. I told them that in the Windows world, this is called a Domain with a domain controller. Go figure. So using RADIUS as the authentication server for a worksgroup server is out of the question. I will recommend a DMZ domain.
