Display AAA status from login prompt

Trent Hewitt

Hello,

Is there a way to display the status of the AAA login services from the login prompt (possibly thru a banner)? The goal would be to know which login credentials I need to use to access the device. For example, if I have radius configured for authentication, and the device cannot reach the radius server, it will displaying something like "RADIUS Servers dead", and then I'd know I have to use my fallback authentication method. I have various routers and switches, all running IOS. 

TIA

You could use an EEM script to monitor the syslog events generated by the switch when the RADIUS server is marked dead/alive. In the event the RADIUS server is marked dead the script would re-write the login banner with an appropriate "RADIUS DEAD" message and when the server is alive re-write the banner with a "RADIUS ALIVE" message.
