NAC 800 authentication against Windows domain

NAC 800 authentication against Windows domain

Hello everyone,

I am trying to configure my NAC 800 to perform 802.1x quarantining and authenticating end users against a Windows domain (2008). The Domain controller is the same server where PCM+ (2.3) and IDM (2.25) are installed.

I have configured the domain and administrator credentials correctly on the NAC. When I try to test the settings, I get the following error:

Test failed: Command "/usr/bin/net ads join -U administrator%******** -W" exited with non-zero value 255 stderr=[2008/07/09 23:09:20, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(289) ads_connect: Server not found in Kerberos database

Is this a Server 2008 issue or a ads issue?

Re: NAC 800 authentication against Windows domain

I would suggest you need to authorize the NAC server on the domain (as you would for a DHCPserver, DNS etc).
