Hi Experts,

I have a Radius installed on win2003r2.
Now we want to migrate to win2008 and we don't know the shared secret anymore.
It was done from another person, who left the company.
How to find out this key ?

If its not documented, you'll need to create a new shared secret and distribute that out to the devices that are using RADIUS.

so there is no way to find it out ?
Is it the same pass which is entered at the pcf file for the VPN clients to connect ?

No way to find it on the server that I'm aware of.  You may try looking at one of the devices connecting to the server to see if you can find the Shared Secret there.  I would think that there may be a firewall or something between the client VPNs and the RADIUS server.  You can find what device is using RADUIS in IAS.

when I have the pcf file from the cisco vpn client, can I find out the shared secret ?
I have heared from a tool which can see the passwords instead of the stars.

ok I found out.
There are two different keys.
The server shared key and the VPN shared key.
Take care of it.
