    Hi everyone,

    We recently started trying to enable that our RADIUS server would forward accounting packages to the firewall so that there would be some sort of SSO.

    We use radius for 802.1x on wired and wireless (WPA2 Enterprise), from wireshark traces it seems that only connections/reauth to wired switches seem to trigger Authentication packages being sent, this makes me suspect that there is something different in the way the Mobility Master/Controller stack is handling radius as opposed to the switches.

    I dug around a bit in the WUI of the Mobility Master but did not find any settings related to radius accounting.

    Looking for ideas :) Thanks!

    Tech specs -
    ArubaOS 8.7.1.2
    MM - 2x VM
    Controllers - 2x 7030

    Do you have a radius accounting server group configured in the AAA profile?

    Nope I missed that :facepalm: (though in my defense it's not in the WUI only in the profile editor)

    Thanks now it's sending Accounting messages to the radius servers :) next step - parse them properly in the firewall.
