Cisco Secure Desktop and Tunnel Group Profiles

Okay Guys, I have a question. I am configuring remote vpn on an ASA 5540. Here is what I want to do but I am not sure if this is possible.

I want to set it up to where when a user goes to they are prompted to select a GROUP and then logon. (Corporate users or Contract users) I have this part working. The problem comes in when I enable Cisco Secure Desktop. I only want my "Contract Users" to load CSD. The problem is when going to it immediately starts to load CSD forcing all users to use CSD. My problem is I DO NOT want my corporate users being forced into CSD so I was hoping that you could FIRST select the profile and then CSD would load only if you are a "Contract User". I am aware of "without-csd" command for the Corporate Tunnel-group "" webvpn attributes, but it still loads CSD before allowing you to select a profile. Hope my scenario is making sense.

Here is my config:

CCCASA-5540# sho run webvpn


enable outside

csd image disk0:/

csd enable

svc image disk0:/anyconnect-win-2.2.0133-k9.pkg 1

Re: Cisco Secure Desktop and Tunnel Group Profiles

You can set up different login windows for different groups by using a combination of customization profiles and tunnel groups. For example, assuming that you had created a customization profile called salesgui, you can create a WebVPN tunnel group called sales that uses that customization profile, as the following URL:

Re: Cisco Secure Desktop and Tunnel Group Profiles

In 8.2.1, you can disable CSD on a per tunnel-group basis when using group URLs as opposed to aliasing. If you intend to have users choose their respective connection profile using the alias drop down menu, then CSD will execute for all users.
