    Configuring Fast Fail Options for the Failover Policy

    You must configure fast fail options for the failover policy for both accounting and authentication messages. Use the following statement to configure fast fail options:

    shared sic group identifier radius network-element id downstream (authentication | accounting) failover-policy
    shared sic group identifier radius network-element id downstream (authentication | accounting) failover-policy fast-fail { minimum-number minimum-number; timeout timeout; reset-delay reset-delay; }

    To configure fast fail options for the failover policy:

    1. From configuration mode, access the statement that configures fast fail options for the failover policy. For example, this sample procedure uses group1 for the group identifier, ne1 for the network element identifier, and accounting as the connection type.
      edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 downstream accounting failover-policy fast-fail
    2. Specify the minimum number of times the message is retransmitted if an acknowledgment from the target is not received.
      [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 downstream accounting failover-policy fast-fail]user@host# set minimum-number minimum-number
    3. Specify the time in seconds before the target is placed into fast fail mode.
      [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 downstream accounting failover-policy fast-fail]user@host# set timeout timeout
    4. Specify the time in seconds after which the target is taken out of fast fail mode.
      [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 downstream accounting failover-policy fast-fail]user@host# set reset-delay reset-delay
