Configuring custom messages for failed logins

This feature allows administrators to configure custom messages that are displayed when authentication with the RADIUS server fails. The messages are appended to existing internal web pages that display during the authentication process. Messages can be configured using the CLI, or centrally using the RADIUS server, and can provide a description of the reason for a failure as well as possible steps to take to resolve the authentication issue. There is no change to the current web-based authentication functionality.

The [no] form of the command means that no message is displayed upon failure to authenticate.
