Hello,

I´ve configured Switch Management Access on X460 to use LDAP via NAC. Everything works fine hands on https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/How-to-configure-NAC-to-handle-Management-Access-from-Switches/?q=switch+admin+user+radius+nac&l=en_US&fs=Search&pn=1

But now there is the problem, that our Management Center can´t login to the switches with the configured cli profile. The system change state to orange with the alert "CLI Login Failed-Unable to authenticate CLI Connection using... credentials.."

Is there a way to allow both, local users and users from LDAP or any other way to use LDAP auth without alerts on EMC?

Thanks in advance,
Ralf

Hello,

You have to configure the profile in the administration tab. Make sure to fill CLI credentials and map in to the devices in the low part of the screen.

You'd need to add the user (used in the CLI profile) to the LDAP directory because that is now asked for every mgmt authentication request.

Thank you for your replies. I´ll try the solution from Ron with a new user to see, when authentication gainst AD works or not.

Best Regards, Ralf
