parsing vsa:not a cisco vendor id:311 – radius


We are getting "parsing vsa:not a cisco vendor id:311 – radius"  error logs from Nexus. What is the impact of this log?

Hello Folks,The error msg

Hello Folks,

The error msg occurs when a Cisco device receives a Radius VSA that is not cisco. VSA 311 belongs to Microsoft so it might be that you are indeed not using a Cisco radius VSA. The error is not harmful.

RADIUS: Attribute length = 12 (0xC)

RADIUS: Vendor ID = 311 (0x137)<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

RADIUS: Vendor string = _

The way to stop seeing the error messages depend on the Cisco device in which you are seeing it, in nexus it is "Logging level user 2".

I hope it helps.

I'm seeing this message

I'm seeing this message repeated thousands of times on my Nexus switches as well.  I tried turning off the Remote Access Multilink in NPS (as suggested in another thread), but it had no effect.

Is there another way to stop NPS from sending this?

What level of detail is lost if we set logging level user to "2"?
