If you plan to use it to authenticate on an 802.1x SSID using AD credentials you will need a radius server.

Hi LionTR, 

If you want to authenticate users against an external Authentication  server, you will need to first  configure your  AAA server, then point *ZoneDirector* to the AAA server so  that requests will  be passed through * ZoneDirector* before access is granted.

ZoneDirector supports Active Directory AAA server.

However if you are  using AP in stand alone mode,  you can configure a 802.1x WLAN mapped to a radius server . 




Thanks 
Munish

You have to configure NPS (service on MS server, providing Radius functionality for user data in AD), and you can do it easy than, as with any standard server. There is detailed manual from Ruckus how to configure both ends, available on Ruckus partner site.

NPS server works for both stand-alone and connected to ZD AP, as it works exactly as a standard Radius server.
 With ZD you can also make direct authentication from MS AD, which doesn't require any configuration on MS Server. Unfortunately,  this mode applies only to WEB-authentication, which is not of much use -- except for guest network. But who will authenticate guests through MS AD?
