configure radius dynamic-authorization server client-ip

configure radius dynamic-authorization index server [host_ipaddr | host_ipV6addr | hostname] client-ip [client_ipaddr | client_ipV6addr] {vr vr_name} {shared-secret {encrypted} secret}


This command configures up to eight RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service) servers with dynamic authorization.


It is recommended to enable loopback mode on the VLAN (Virtual LAN) associated with RADIUS if the RADIUS connectivity is established using a front panel port on a SummitStack.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to specify RADIUS server information.

Use of the hostname parameter requires that DNS be enabled.

The RADIUS server defined by this command is used for user name authentication and CLI command authentication.


The following example configures a RADIUS dynamic authorization server with server index 100 on host "radius1" using the default UDP port (1812) for use by the RADIUS client on switch using a virtual router interface of VR-Default:

configure radius dynamic-authorization 100 server radius1 client-ip vr vr-Default


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 22.1.
