WCS w/ radius auth

Hi all,

I am trying to set up radius authentication for the management users of WCS. I am using freeradius.

I created a user and set included the necessary group tasks in the reply using Cisco-AVPair. I can see in the debug on the radius server that the user is indeed authenticated and the Cisco-AVPair values are returned in the authentication response, however WCS reports that the user could not be logged in due to an invalid password.

In the meantime, I have reverted to using local users.

Has anyone set up WCS against freeradius for authentication of the management users?

Try to remove and reconfigure WCS and then restart the WCS.

what does freeradius indicate?

kill your freeradius daemon and run freedadius in debug mode as root

#radiusd -XA

watch the output on your freeradius server while

you try to authenticate to WCS.

it should give some clues as to why it is failing. my guess would be the ports radius is config'd for.

I have this issue as well. I am using Cisco ACS for Radius and it fails on both IETF and Cisco Radius.

I have the attributes and it says invalid password although my authentication has passed correctly.

Has anyone got this working?
