    Configuring Failover Mode (SRC CLI)

    You must configure failover mode for both accounting and authentication messages. Use the following statement to configure failover mode:

    shared sic group identifier radius network-element id downstream (authentication | accounting) {failover-mode (round-robin | primary-backup);}

    To configure failover mode:

    1. From configuration mode, access the statement that configures the network element failover mode and specify whether the connection is for authentication or accounting messages.

      For example, this sample procedure uses group1 for the group identifier, ne1 for the network element identifier, and accounting as the connection.

      [edit]user@host# edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 downstream accounting
    2. Specify failover mode used by the network element.
      [edit shared sic group group1 radius network-element ne1 downstream]user@host# set failover-mode (round-robin | primary-backup)

      Where:

      • round-robin—When this failover mode is used, messages are sent to the network element over alternating paths.
      • primary-backup—When this failover mode is used, messages are sent over the primary path unless it is unavailable, in which case messages are sent over the backup path.
