WLC 5508 AD authentication for management

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to set up a 5508 to authenticate to AD for management.  Currently, all of our Cisco devices authenticate to AD through NPS running on a windows 2008 server and if the server is unavailable, they failover to local authentication.  I'd like to do this on our new controller but I can't seem to find the correct info on how to do this, if it can.  All my searches result in instructions on how to authenticate wireless users.

Thanks

Yes, you can via NPS (Radius) which then ties into AD. Here is a Cisco exmaple document:

I hope this helps...

That did help.  Thanks.  Looks like I had everything configured correctly except for the service-type.  We had the service-type set as login.  When I found out that the controller needed it to be administrative, I changed it and it works now.  Thanks a ton!
