We would like that any one who accesses the cisco call manager , it should ask for credentials like it is used for Network devices ( Routers /Switches)
so that one keeps track of any changes being made on it
Can we add Cisco Call Manager Server to Cisco ACS Server
CUCM already asks you for a user/pwd for admin pages and ccmuser. If you don't have those you can't log in
CUCM does not integrate to any other authentication mechanisms for login.

Java is correct (+5 J-man) but I would like to clarify that you can have CUCM authenticate users against an external LDAP repository. You would lose centralized accounting on the ACS server, but it is likely that the ACS is also using LDAP for credential authentication. Which may get you a little closer.
So, Authentication can be done locally on the CUCM or via a backend LDAP repository. Authorization and Accounting are done on the CUCM. The CUCM provides very granular authorization controls. The accounting is provided by the auditing features embedded in later versions of CUCM.

Yes, this has been asked plenty of times before
You can use ldap authentication for cucm administration now, is that not correct? It doesn't allow all features that are related to system administration, but the day-to-day admin stuff can definitely be allowed for ldap users.
You have been able to add LDAP users to the CUCM admin group for quite a long time, that only enables access to the system, what a user can do, is based on roles and groups.
