smartzone aaa admin authentication

New Contributor III
Hello everybody,

i have a problem with confguring admin authentication on virtual smartzone controller.

I have an active directory group with my admin users in.
I have setup the AAA server in SZ both ways, with RADIUS and Active Directory with default role mapping. Active directory group mapped to a local administrator.
Just to check which one workes for me.
Before i have created an local administartor and an local group with super_admin permissions.

If i test the AAA server with my AD user i alway get the error "Invalid username or password", which is not true.
I get this message at Radius and AD server test.

Connection between SZ, AD and Radius server is given.
Radius config should be fine because i also authenticate switches on this way.

Can somebody help me with this topic?

Are you using the Microsoft Active Directory and NPS?

Since you have checked the user name and password, check if the "PAP" is allowed on the Radius "Network Policy".

If you are testing from the SZ GUI, the authentication protocol used is PAP.
Check the below link and refer the page number 24 for the PAP settings.

Check the NPS events to see the exact details about the connection failure.
