Is there a way I can retrieve an "radius server host key" ? I am trying to add a radius-server host into AP and I don't know what the key was. It was not provided to us by the previous admin.

No, but you can just go into the radius server and change it to something you DO know. It's specific for each client (i.e. the AP) so you won't hurt anything else.

What mike said (unless you have a previous AP config version) and then remember to document the key :)

I have copied the configuration from another access point and pasted yo thr other one. I still don't know the key but the copy and paste worked. :)

If it's a Cisco AP you can use a Cisco 7 password decrypt tool (search Google) to find the password.

Some RADIUS servers let you see the RADIUS key by ticking a box.  Microsoft IAS and NPS don't though.
