  • 1.  Juniper-Local-User-Name VSA with Windows NPS

    Posted 01-04-2023 14:38
    I am trying to set up Radius authentication on our Juniper equipment.  I am able to get it working, but I do not want to make a user for every tech person in our environment.  It would effectively defeat the purpose of using Radius.

    I know that I can utilize the "remote" user as a fallback method, but I would like to use it for read-only users if I am able.

    Juniper provides an example of how to configure Juniper-Local-User-Name VSA using freeRADIUS in this article:

    Unfortunately, we are using Windows NPS and i have been unable to find any examples or figure it out myself for the platform.

    Is anyone able to provide answers or documentation for this?

    Thank you,

    Did you ever get this to work?

    I have the same problem.

    I have set up the Attribute value to be "Juniper-Local-User-Name  = SU" with Vendor ID of 2636 and type 1 and can see this passed in the WireShark captures from the server to the switch.  I tried differnt format:  := with " and without, all seem  to be passed but none see to make a difference.

    Having just posted this, I found the answer.

    The config line does NOT need the variable name to be specified, it appears the VSA value of 1 is sufficient.

    see screen shot which hopefully shows the full config steps.

    As shown this logs an authorised used into the switch using the template SU
