Configuring Proxy RADIUS as the Accounting Method (SRC CLI)

When you use the proxy RADIUS accounting method, the SIC forwards accounting messages to a remote AAA server (accounting target) located in a downstream network element for processing.

To use the proxy RADIUS accounting method, you need to have previously configured the downstream network element, associated the accounting target, and committed the configuration. For details about configuring downstream network elements and accounting targets, see Configuring Downstream Network Elements and Accounting and Authentication Targets (SRC CLI).

Use the following statements to configure the proxy accounting method:

shared sic group identifier accounting-method accounting-method-name
shared sic group identifier accounting-method accounting-method-name proxy radius {network-element network-element;}

To configure proxy RADIUS as the accounting method for the SIC group:

  1. From configuration mode, access the statement that configures the accounting method. For example, to configure an accounting method called acm2 for the SIC group group2 and specify proxy RADIUS as the accounting method:
    [edit]user@host# edit shared sic group group2 accounting-method acm2 proxy radius
  2. Specify the name of the previously configured downstream network element that contains the AAA server (accounting target) you want the SIC to forward accounting events to. For example, to forward accounting events to the downstream network element ne2:
    [edit shared sic group group2 accounting-method acm2 proxy radius]user@host# set network-element ne2
