3560 froze on radius command

Unanswered Question
Apr 23rd, 2009

while configuring a 3560G for aaa\radius my router froze and had to be manually booted.

aaa settings are ok, didn't get any problems with this part

but when I started typing the radius commands... oh boy!

this is the first line: ip radius source-interface Vlan200

then this is the second command which broke it all:

radius-server host 192.168.200.x auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646 key 7 password

any idea what & why this command would break and how can I configure my radius without breaking the switch?

By default RADIUS and AAA are disabled by default. Ensure it is enabled or not.

Configure your switch to support RADIUS. At a minimum, you must identify the host or hosts that run the RADIUS server software and define the method lists for RADIUS authentication. You can optionally define method lists for RADIUS authorization and accounting.

Well, I've done it on other switches and had no problems.

The AAA config part did not produce any errors

There is no way to test it unlike my ASA that does allow a test cmd

So how do I verify radius is enabled and AAA config is correct before I add the radius cmd?
