AD authentication on virtual smartzone

Hello,


I want to create a WLAN (on virtual Smartzone high scale) with AD authntication.
Unfortunately, when I create the Authentication profile, i get an error message
Image_ images_messages_5f91c3e8135b77e2478da318_2b2919f62388d4b089e891d3718b826b_RackMultipart2018022117584m7rl-af588678-1a37-45af-9379-110a7f153ab0-1229501168.PNG1519200734

If I select radius, i don'thave this error (but the authentication doesn't work.
It seems that there is no way to select the AD instead of Radius.
Any idea ?

It does work but you do have to configure the syntax like an LDAP query in vbscript.  There is one issue if you're trying to do the authentication through the webservice:  The APs attempt to use chap authentication and you have to tell them all to use pap (using a script run from the controller).

Keep in mind that authenticating to AD is a simple pass/fail (you have a domain account or you don't).  It doesn't allow you the granular control you can get in RADIUS (if you are a member of this domain group, then...).
