User name not logged when using CNA

Unanswered Question
May 4th, 2007


I've just started to explore the excellent system with the archive function in Cisco switches, and my setup looks like this:


log config

logging enable

logging size 500

notify syslog


And when using telnet to control the switch it works perfect. Every change I make to the switch is sent to the syslog together with my login name, like this:

05-04-2007 09:31:27 Local7.Notice 781: May 4 09:31:23: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:og4 logged command:log config

But when logging in via Cisco Network Assistant (CNA), the user name is not displayed, like this:

05-04-2007 09:16:30 Local7.Notice 779: May 4 09:16:26: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:unknown user logged command:no switchport nonegotiate.

This of course undermines the whole idea of logging who did what.

Is this a bug or just something i forgot to configure?

I use radius to authenticate by the way, and that works perfect with both telnet and CNA.

Funny thing is, when using the command login on-success log, it is the other way around;

When using CNA the successfully logged in user is displayed, but when using telnet, no user name comes up, like this:

05-04-2007 10:07:24 Local7.Notice 800: May 4 10:07:20: %SEC_LOGIN-5-LOGIN_SUCCESS: Login Success [user: ] [Source:] [localport: 23] at 10:07:20 CET Fri May 4 2007

05-04-2007 10:07:04 Local7.Notice 799: May 4 10:06:59: %SEC_LOGIN-5-LOGIN_SUCCESS: Login Success [user: og4] [Source:] [localport: 80] at 10:06:59 CET Fri May 4 2007
