AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

The AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation feature allows you to extend and expand your ability to configure authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers using the CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB. Using this feature, you can do the following:

  • Create and add new AAA servers.
  • Modify the “KEY” under the CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB.
  • Delete the AAA server configuration.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest feature information and caveats, see the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the Feature Information Table at the end of this document.

Use Cisco Feature Navigator to find information about platform support and Cisco software image support. To access Cisco Feature Navigator, go to www.cisco.com/​go/​cfn. An account on Cisco.com is not required.

Prerequisites for AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

AAA must have been enabled on the router, that is, the aaa new-model command must have been configured. If this configuration has not been accomplished, the set operation fails.

Restrictions for AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

Currently, the CISCO SNMP set operation is supported only for the RADIUS protocol. Therefore, only RADIUS servers in global configuration mode can be added, modified, or deleted.

Information About AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB

The CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB provides that statistics reflect both the state of the AAA server operation with the server itself and of AAA communications with external servers. The CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB provides the following information:

  • Statistics for each AAA operation
  • Status of servers that are providing AAA functions
  • Identities of external AAA servers

CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1, the CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB supports both the get and set operations. With the set operation, you can do the following:

  • Create or add a new AAA server.
  • Modify the KEY under the CISCO-AAA-SERVER-MIB. This “secret key” is used for secure connectivity to the AAA server, which is present with the network access server (NAS) and the AAA server.
  • Delete the AAA server configuration.

How to Configure AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

No special configuration is required for this feature. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) framework can be used to manage MIBs. See the section Additional References for a reference to configuring SNMP.

Verifying RADIUS Server Configuration and Server Statistics

RADIUS server configuration and server statistics can be verified by performing the following steps.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    show running-config | include radius-server host

    3.    show aaa servers


DETAILED STEPS
      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Router> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2 show running-config | include radius-server host


    Example:
    Router# show running-config | include radius-server host
     

    Displays all the RADIUS servers that are configured in the global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 show aaa servers


    Example:
    Router# show aaa servers
     

    Displays information about the number of requests sent to and received from authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers.

     

    Configuration Examples for AAA-SERVER-MIB Set Operation

    RADIUS Server Configuration and Server Statistics Example

    The following output example shows the RADIUS server configuration and server statistics before and after the set operation.

    Before the Set Operation

    Router# show running-config | include radius-server host
    ! The following line is for server 1.
    radius-server host 172.19.192.238 auth-port 2095 acct-port 2096 key cisco2
    ! The following line is for server 2.
    radius-server host 172.19.192.238 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646

    Server Statistics

    Router# show aaa servers
    RADIUS: id 2, priority 1, host 172.19.192.238, auth-port 2095, acct-port 2096

    SNMP Get Operation to Check the Configuration and Statistics of the RADIUS Servers

    aaa-server5:/users/smetri> getmany 10.0.1.42 casConfigTable
    casAddress.2.2 = 172.19.192.238
    casAddress.2.3 = 172.19.192.238
    casAuthenPort.2.2 = 2095
    casAuthenPort.2.3 = 1645
    casAcctPort.2.2 = 2096
    casAcctPort.2.3 = 1646
    casKey.2.2 = 
    casKey.2.3 =
    ! The following line shows priority for server 1.
    casPriority.2.2 = 1
    ! The following line shows priority for server 2.
    casPriority.2.3 = 2
    casConfigRowStatus.2.2 = active(1)
    casConfigRowStatus.2.3 = active(1)
    aaa-server5:/users/smetri> 

    SNMP Set Operation

    The key of the existing RADIUS server is being changed. The index “1” is being used. That index acts as a wildcard for addition, deletion, or modification of any entries.

    Change the key for server 1:=>
    aaa-server5:/users/smetri>  setany -v2c 10.0.1.42 public casAddress.2.1 -a 172.19.192.238 casAuthenPort.2.1 -i 2095 casAcctPort.2.1 -i 2096 casKey.2.1 -o king 
    casAddress.2.1 = 172.19.192.238
    casAuthenPort.2.1 = 2095
    casAcctPort.2.1 = 2096
    casKey.2.1 = king
    aaa-server5:/users/smetri>

    After the Set Operation

    After the above SNMP set operation, the configurations on the router change. The following output shows the output after the set operation.

    Router# show running-config | include radius-server host
    radius-server host 172.19.192.238 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646
    ! The following line shows a change in the key value to “king.”
    radius-server host 172.19.192.238 auth-port 2095 acct-port 2096 key king

    Router# show aaa servers
