SG300 Login Radius authentification

Hallo Community,

i have a big problem with my SG300 switch. I would like to implement Radius authentification for SSH Access via Radius.

The Radius server is a Windows Server 2008 R2 (NPS). The Switch and the Server can communicate.

On the radius server are the following settings confugured:

Service type 6

Cisco AV Pair shell:priv-lvl=15

I open a connection via putty for SSH access:

i use my domain login, right username and the right password. But i get the message: Authentification Failed

The radius server get the information that the access grant.


If i try a false password or a unkown user, i get a new change to use another user or password.


here are the Radius setting:


Can anybody help me?
