WLC with Multiple RADIUS Accounting Servers

If a WLC has multiple accounting servers defined for a WLAN, will accounting packets be sent to all accounting servers ?

The operation of authentication servers is that the WLC will only send authentication requests to a single RADIUS server. If that RADIUS server becomes unavailable, then the WLC will start to send authentication requests to the next available RADIUS server in the list configured for the WLAN.

Is it the same mode of operation for accounting servers? Or, does the WLC send accounting records to all accounting servers that are defined against a WLAN?

Thanks

Nigel.

Nigel,

The WLAN will move to next accounting server if the current one is not available. Same with authentication.

WLC with Multiple RADIUS Accounting Servers

So the WLC would use the priority list for the Radius servers for accouting.

I have a setup that I need to send accounting to two different servers for different reasons. can this be done on the WLC?

if not, does anyone know a good forking server for radius accounting?

Hello Nigel,

As per your query i can suggest you the following solution-

Yes it is true the WLAN will move to the next accounting server if the current is not available. It is the same process for authentication.

Hope this will help you.
