Cisco ISE with AD Problem: "Could not read groups data: Global catalog not found"

Hi all,

When I make the ActiveDirectory integration with Cisco ISE, I have complete with this integration. but when I try to read the Groups from Active Directory, ISE shows the message "Could not read groups data: Global catalog not found".

My Domain has multiple sites and subnets, each contains GC for local logon. I have set ISE to the correct site and subnet. Forward and Reverse DNS are working with no error.

Does anyone get this problem, please help.

I have check into the ISE CLI Reference Guide 1.1.x

You are about to configure Active Directory settings.

Are you sure you want to proceed? y/n [n]: y

Parameter Name: dns.servers

Parameter Value: 10.77.122.135

Active Directory internal setting modification should only be performed if approved by ISE 
support. Please confirm this change has been approved y/n [n]: y

What shoud I set in the Parameter Name ? dns.servers or my dns hostname ?

Please suggest for this too.

Thanks and Regards,

Pongsatorn M.

Re: Cisco ISE with AD Problem: "Could not read groups data: Glob

Just checking...

  1. Did you join by GUI?
  2. How many Nodes in your deployment? 
  3. Did you join all the nodes running the Policy Service persona?
  4. Why are/did you modify the CLI settings?

And

  1. Have you run a Detail Test?  If not, do so.  If so, zip it up and attach it to a reply post.

I hope you find this answer useful, if it was satisfactory  for you, please mark the question as Answered.

Cisco ISE with AD Problem: "Could not read groups data: Global c

Hi,

Do not use google chrome, try using mozilla instead (ise does not play nice with chrome). Also check your sites and services information and see if there domain controllers listed for the subnet that ISE is connected to.

Thanks,

Re:Cisco ISE with AD Problem: "Could not read groups data: Globa

Hi,
Site and subnet is set. it still not working.

But I fixes it already using CLI reference guide.
"application configure ise"

ISE should describe more integration requirements about this. :(

Hi Pongsatorn,

What was your CLI fix for this problem?

I am seeing the same thing in a resent deployment.

Cheers,

Re:Cisco ISE with AD Problem: "Could not read groups data: Globa

Hi Greg,

Can you explain more about your deployment ?

Can you expalin more about the Active Directory Infrastructure in your site ?

What happen when you open your command-line and type "netdom query fsmo" ?

However, this is my working solution for me

I using this command below to fix my issue.

"application configuration ise"

Then I select option 3 to make a static Active Directory setting

Parameter Name: dns.servers  --> not change to anything you think before just type "dns.servers"

Parameter Value: 1.2.3.4  --> Point to your AD IP address

Then select option 5 after that option 4

Hope this help

Regards,

Re:Cisco ISE with AD Problem: "Could not read groups data: Globa

Hi Pongsatorn,

Thanks for the reply!

I've attached the results of the ISE detailed AD test. As you can see, there is a fair number of domain controllers in the AD forest.

It seems everything works correctly until it gets to testing the AD connectivity on port 3268. Then I get this:

  Testing Active Directory connectivity:

    Global Catalog: pdascdc02.xyz.com

      gc:       3268/tcp - refused

  Testing Active Directory connectivity:

    Global Catalog: pdascdc02.xyz.com

      gc:       3268/tcp - refused

For some reason, the request to the controllers on port 3268 is being refused.

Any thoughts you might have are greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Greg
