This article explains how to configure IPv6 for Radius communication on the Aruba Controller.


Prior to AOS version, we could only configure the Aruba Controller to talk to the Radius/TACACS server using only IPv4 IP addresses. However, with AOS version, Aruba now supports communication between the controller and the Radius server using IPv6 IP address as well.


Environment : This article applies to all Aruba Controllers running OS version or above.
