Integrating Cisco ACS 5.3 and RSA Manager

Hi There

What I would like to achieve is when ever a user telnet/ssh into a network equipment, the username should come from the ACS and the password should be via RSA token. I know there's 2 methods to do this i.e. SECUREID NATIVE and RADIUS, and I have chosen the RADIUS method.

Here's my problem so far, when a user telnet/ssh into a network equipment and keys in the username and RSA token, as the password, I get an error message "Authorization Failed". However, if i were to use a username and a password created internally in the ACS, all is good. I believe the RSA Manager is not returning me priv-lvl=15. I also believe in order to resolve this issue, I need to put in the RADIUS VSA Attributes into the ACS, but I don't know the RADIUS Attributes. Can someone assist me please.

Basically, what's the vsa attribute name and value Cisco is expecting for an admin user with privilege 15?

Ramraj,

I dont think you can proxy a tacacs authentication request against a radius server. I dont recall seeing that as being an option.

Thanks,
