Radius and Billing

Dear NetPros,

I have configured the Radius & Billing Servers on my Cisco AS5350 which is terminating VoIP Traffic as given below. The First two are Mind Billing Primary and Secondary Billing Servers. The Third one is a billing server from another vendor. I want to send CDR information to all the three billing servers simultaneously. Currently the gateway is only sending the Radius and Billing information to the first available server. Is there any way for the gateway to send radius and billing information to all these three servers simultaneously???? Would appreciate any help or suggestion in this area. Thanx

aaa group server radius mind

server AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646

server EEE.FFF.GGG.HHH auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646

server III.JJJ.KKK.LLL auth-port 1812 acct-port 1813

Re: Radius and Billing

The AAA "Broadcast Accounting" feature allows accounting information to be sent to multiple AAA servers at the same time; that is, accounting information can be broadcast to one or more AAA servers simultaneously. This feature allows broadcasting among "groups of servers". And each server group can define its backup servers for fail over independently of other groups.

However, the restriction is that Accounting information can be sent simultaneously to a maximum of four AAA servers.

For the scenario mentioned, in order to send billing info to all the 3 servers simultaneously, the aaa accounting command can be configured globally, as in:

aaa accounting network default start-stop broadcast group mind1 group mind2 group mind3

The individual servers in the server group 'mind' may be split across different server groups.

*****************************************************************

aaa group server radius mind1

server AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646

aaa group server radius mind2

server EEE.FFF.GGG.HHH auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646

aaa group server radius mind3

server III.JJJ.KKK.LLL auth-port 1812 acct-port 1813

****************************************************************

(Backup servers within each server-group may be defined)

Simultaneously accounting records are sent to the first server in each group. If the first server is unavailable, fail over occurs using the backup servers defined within that group.
