Radius (NPS) Cisco Nexus 5xxx configuration

Greetings experts...

I have an environment that consists of several Cisco IOS devices and (currently) a single Nexus 5xxx device.  Radius is being provided by Windows Server 2008R2.  On the IOS devices Radius is authenticating properly but I can't seem to get the settings correct in the Nexus for it to log me in.

Below are the applicable lines from the Nexus configuration.  Please let me know what else you might need to help me finish configuring. Thanks in advance.


radius-server host 172.16.43.7 key 7 "Kwvw1sVieds1x" accounting
aaa group server radius radius
    use-vrf management
aaa group server radius ADAUTH
    server 172.16.43.7

Nexus behaves differently than IOS devices. NX-OS works with Roles as opposed to IOS's privileges.

You need to configure the following attribute in your RADIUS server:

cisco-av-pair=shell:roles="network-admin"

naderz,

Thanks for your quick response.  I added the 'Vendor Specific' pair you suggested but still it is not working.  When a use the 'test' command it returns Status=7, which I can't find much on.

Any other ideas?

Well, Status=7 means the user name and password used is not recognized by the Radius server.

Would you post the "show radius all" and "show aaa all" command outputs? Please scrub the username/passwords (or, use fake ones) before posting.

show radius-server

   timeout value:5
   deadtime value:0
   source interface:Vlan643
   total number of servers:1
   following RADIUS servers are configured:
        172.16.43.7:

                RADIUS shared secret:********

show aaa authe

Sorry about that! I meant "show run radius all" and "show run aaa all".

Questions:

1) have you double checked theRadius server configs to make sure that the correct AD group is mapped for the new policy for Nexus? Your IOS devices should have their own mapping.

2) Can you try these commands one more time?

radius-server host 172.16.43.7 authentication accounting
radius-server key "your key here"

3) And, then run the test aaa command one more time?
