    Hi,
    how can i assign an DNS Server for VPM Clients while using "ip local pool".
    The "local pool" are used with AAA (ACS). Must i assign the DNS server also
    with the ACS (cisco av pair) or are there other options (like DHCP)?
    thanks D.K.

    Not sure what a VPM client is (VPN?) There are different ways
    to assign DNS server addresses to clients, depending on what kind
    of layer 2 networking method the clients are using to access the
    network.

    If you are using Easy VPN Server, then you should be able to configure
    the VPN Server to push the DNS server addresses to the clients when
    they connect.

    If they are using PPP, then just use "ppp ipcp dns" in interface mode
    to configure the server addresses. (Ancient IOS would use the global
    "async-bootp dns-server" command

    If the clients are using DHCP to get their IP addresses, then of course
    you would add the DNS server info to their DHCP scope.

    If the clients are using neither PPP IPCP nor DHCP to get their IP addresses,
    then they *could* still use DHCP to learn their DNS server addresses, but the
    clients would have to be configured to use DHCP INFORM.

  3. Try the command:

    vpngroup <groupname> dns-server <ipaddress>
