Configures the authentication string used to communicate with the RADIUS accounting server.
|mgmt-access||Specifies the switch management RADIUS accounting server.|
|netlogin||Specifies the network login RADIUS accounting server.|
|primary||Configures the authentication string for the primary RADIUS accounting server.|
|secondary||Configures the authentication string for the secondary RADIUS accounting server.|
|encrypted||Indicates that the string is already encrypted.|
|secret||The string to be used for authentication. Maximum length of 32 characters.|
The secret must be the same between the client switch and the RADIUS accounting server.
The mgmt-access keyword specifies the RADIUS accounting server used for switch management.
The netlogin keyword specifies the RADIUS accounting server used for network login.
If you do not specify the mgmt-access or netlogin keywords, the secret applies to both the primary or secondary switch management and netlogin RADIUS accounting servers.
The encrypted keyword is primarily for the output of the show configuration command, so the shared secret is not revealed in the command output. Do not use it to set the shared secret.
The following command configures the shared secret as “purpleaccount” on the primary RADIUS accounting server for both management and network login:
configure radius primary shared-secret purpleaccount
The following command configures the shared secret as “greenaccount” on the primary management RADIUS accounting server:
configure radius mgmt-access primary shared-secret greenaccount
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.

The mgmt-access and netlogin keywords were added in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
