Configures the authentication string used to communicate with the RADIUS authentication server.
|mgmt-access||Specifies the switch management RADIUS authentication server.|
|netlogin||Specifies the network login RADIUS authentication server.|
|primary||Configures the authentication string for the primary RADIUS server.|
|secondary||Configures the authentication string for the secondary RADIUS server.|
|index||RADIUS server index.|
|encrypted||Indicates that the string is already encrypted.|
|secret||The string to be used for authentication.|
The secret must be the same between the client switch and the RADIUS server.
The RADIUS server must first be configured for use with the switch as a RADIUS client.
The mgmt-access keyword specifies the RADIUS server used for switch management authentication.
The netlogin keyword specifies the RADIUS server used for network login authentication.
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 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 example configures the shared secret as "purplegreen" on the primary RADIUS server for both switch management and network login:
configure radius primary shared-secret purplegreen
The following example configures the shared secret as "redblue" on the primary switch management RADIUS server:
configure radius mgmt-access primary shared-secret redblue
