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

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...).
