The video walks you through an installation of Cisco ACS 5.x (we use 5.3 for our demonstration) VMware version. We will guide you step-by-step through the installation process. At the end of this lab, you should have a working ACS server that you can use for RADIUS and TACACS+ authentication in future labs. No configuration, other than the setup process, is performed in this video. The video assumes that you have basic working knowledge of VMware ESXi.

Installation Pre-requisite
  • ESXi Server
  • ACS 5.x ISO
  • ACS 5.x (demo) license
  • DNS Server, NTP Server
