Hi All ,

we are configuring all our network switches with Radius authentication ,we are able to roll out on most of the switches successfully ,but the cisco WS-C3548-XL (C3500XL-C3H2S-M) switch with IOS Version 12.0(5)WC8, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)  is not accepting our default configuration commands as below

aaa new-model

aaa authentication login default group radius local

ip radius source-interface VlanXX ( Specify Management Vlan)

radius-server host XX.XX.XX.XX auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646 key *******

radius-server source-ports 1645-1646 aaa new-model

I do not know if this is just an artifact of cut and paste for this message or whether it is really what you are using, but this line would certainly be rejected for invalid syntax if you did input it to a switch

radius-server source-ports 1645-1646 aaa new-model

If it is just a cut and paste issue then I agree with Ed that we need more information about what part is not accepted and any messages that are generated. I would also appreciate some clarification about whether you are experiencing this problem on a single particular switch or whether you are experiencing it on several switches all of which are WS-C3548-XL (C3500XL-C3H2S-M)

Kalyan,

What do you get for :

"radius?"

try to use "?" to fill the command.

the syntax might be different on this guy.

Ed,

Here you go

Switch(config)#aaa new-model
Switch(config)#radius ?
% Unrecognized command
Switch(config)#

i just want to know which is the syntax equivalent of the below

radius-server host 172.26.0.11 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646 key *****
