Configuring More Than One Authentication Method (SRC CLI)

Tasks to configure more than one authentication method at the SRC CLI are:

  1. Configuring Authentication Order
  2. Configuring TACACS+ or RADIUS Authentication
  3. Configuring TACACS+ and RADIUS Authentication

Configuring Authentication Order

To configure the order in which to use authentication servers:

  1. From configuration mode, access the [system] hierarchy level.
  2. Specify the authentication order.
    [edit system]user@host# set authentication-order [(radius | tacplus | password)]

    Specify one or more of the following in the preferred order, from first authentication method tried to last tried:

    • radius—Verify the user using RADIUS authentication services.
    • tacplus—Verify the user using TACACS+ authentication services.
    • password—Verify the user using the password configured for the user with the authentication statement at the [edit system login user] hierarchy level.

If you do not include the authentication-order statement, users are verified based on their configured passwords.

Note: The SRC software looks at the local password file even if the RADIUS server sends an Access-Reject.

Configuring TACACS+ or RADIUS Authentication

To configure the SRC software to try to authenticate users through TACACS+ and, if the TACACS+ server is unavailable, to use password authentication:

Configuring TACACS+ and RADIUS Authentication

To configure the SRC software to try to authenticate users through TACACS+, and if the TACACS+ server is unavailable, to use RADIUS authentication; and then, if the RADIUS server is unavailable, to use password authentication:
