fabric OS brocade switches (v6.2.2d) RADIUS/NAS

    Posted 04-10-2019 05:36 AM

    Hello good day!

     

    I have fabric OS brocade switches (v6.2.2d) that are part of a fabric A and another Fabric B. I discovered that these switches using SSH connection can not authenticate using RADIUS unless there is in the NPS server I put the NAS mode. If I remove the NAS mode I can not access these switches.

     

    The problem is that I have other newer switches in several fabrics in the environment that do not need the NAS in the NSP to work. Checking the RADIUS config on one of the switches, I noticed that logically the setup parameter is different from the newer switches. The issue is that I no longer have support for this switch and I am in doubt whether or not I can configure the same RADISU \ NPS settings for the newer switches on older switches, since the firmware version is high bang.

    Hello,

     

    there is only difference in auth protocols as some of them become obsolete .

    I was able to solve the problem. It was setting the NAS Identifier in rule in the NPS. I made a move and solved it.

    Warning for switches in version 6 that use NAS Identifier. The newer switches do not accept this condition.
