avaya 8800 radius password fallback
« on: August 26, 2013, 08:50:04 AM »

I've been reding this forum for a while, and it has been very helpful in many situations. Now I decided to participate, this is my first post.

This post is Due to a doubt in configuring avaya 8800 integration with radius-server.
I've configured the 8800 correctly and its performing radius authentication (web only).
The question is, what if the radius server becomes unavailable?

For 4000/5000 series there is the command "radius-server password fallback", but for 8800 I can't found it. Is it Done by default? I'm following ĞManagement Access Security for ERS 8800/8600 Technical Configuration Guideğ

Switch is a 8800 8895 SF/CP V7.2.0.2

Hello MeireleR, first welcome to the forums.

As far as I know "radius fallback" is enabled/set by default on the ERS-8k and VSP-9k.

I recommend to test that "feature" if it really works, I had some negative experiences in past (v5.x) regarding this.
So my "default way during maintenance windows" is to disable radius authentication globally before.


Good luck

Thank you MatzeKS,

I'll test it for sure, I'm using radius authentication (in this testing phase) for web only to prevent unwanted situations.

When the fallback mode is active, you can use the local accounts.
You can have the local accounts setting information by typing the command:
# show cli password

then you got:
Access Login Username / Password
RW RW RW / ***************
RO RO RO / ***************

I tried on a brand new Avaya 3510GT and it works :)

I found this information in the Avaya download website.

I hope that could help you
