configure netlogin authentication database-order

configure netlogin [mac | web-based] authentication database-order [[radius] | [local] | [radius local] | [local radius]]


Configures the order of database authentication protocols to use.

Syntax Description

mac Specifies MAC-based authentication.
web-based Specifies Web-based authentication.
radius Specifies an authentication order from only the RADIUS database.
local Specifies an authentication order from only the local database.
radius local Specifies an authentication order of RADIUS database first, followed by local.
local radius Specifies an authentication order of local database first, followed by RADIUS.


By default, the authentication order is RADIUS, local-user database.

Usage Guidelines

As of ExtremeXOS 16.1, the functionality of this command is more consistent with management authentications. If RADIUS responds with a reject, then that reject is honored. The only time the local database is checked is when the RADIUS server does not respond.


The following command sets the database authentication order to local-user database, RADIUS:

configure netlogin mac authentication database-order local radius


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
