Usage guidelines

When the RADIUS server load sharing feature is disabled, the device first tries to communicate with the primary server if the primary server is in active state. If the primary server is unavailable, the device performs the following operations:

When the quiet timer of the primary server times out, the status of the server automatically changes to active. If you set the server status to blocked before the quiet timer times out, the server status cannot change back to active unless you manually set the status to active.

When the RADIUS server load sharing feature is enabled, the device checks the weight value and number of currently served users only for servers in active state. The most appropriate active server is selected for communication.

When the primary server and all secondary servers are in blocked state, the device tries to communicate with the primary server.

This command can affect the RADIUS server status detection feature when a valid test profile is specified for a primary RADIUS authentication server.


# In RADIUS scheme radius1, set the status of the primary authentication server to blocked.
