Is there a means in VOSS to either still allow local accounts access to a switch, or something similar to the Failsafe account in EXOS, when you have RADIUS configured?
The advantage to the failsafe account in EXOS meant you always had a means to login into the switch regardless of state, i.e. if RADIUS was still active but something gets miss-configured or stops working in some fashion.
Without Failsafe access you could find yourself locked out of the switch if the RADIUS server is active but something isn’t quite working with it.
A failsafe account was also always a reassuring means that access to the switch would always be granted.

Hi Martin, thank you for your patience while we looked in to this for you. Radius will supersede local authentication, so if the Radius server is not responding, things will fall back to local authentication options instead. Page 449 in this document goes over this in more detail: https://documentation.extremenetworks.com/VOSS/SW/81x/9035882_AdminVOSS_8.1_ADG.pdf?_ga=2.169313313.1064181323.1614107180-386645217.1530191928
Is that what you were looking for?
