I have configured a Windows 2003 RADIUS server successfully and use it with Procurve switch 2650. Everything works fine until I shut down the RADIUS server... I am supposed to be able to use the local account but it does not work. Here is my RADIUS config on a HP 2650 :

# show authentication

 Status and Counters - Authentication Information

  Login Attempts : 3
  Respect Privilege : Disabled

              | Login      Login      Enable     Enable
  Access Task | Primary    Secondary  Primary    Secondary
  ----------- + ---------- ---------- ---------- ----------
  Console     | Local      None       Local      None
  Telnet      | Local      None       Local      None
  Port-Access | Local      None
  Webui       | Radius     Local      Local      None
  SSH         | Radius     Local      Local      None
  Web-Auth    | ChapRadius None
  MAC-Auth    | ChapRadius None


Here is the config, I have a Manager local user and an Operator local user :


# sh conf

Here I try to use the local account since I shutdown the RADIUS server :


U:\>ssh mylocaluser@x.x.x.x

Saisissez le mot de passe pour mylocaluser@x.x.x.x:
error: Connection closed by remote host.

Connection closed to x.x.x.x


Any help would be appreciated.




Re: Radius

Hi Stephane,


Think you are missing the follwing lines:

aaa authentication web enable radius local

aaa authentication ssh enable radius local
