IssueUsing the RADIUS Export utility to migrate 6.1 RSA RADIUS data to an RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 primary instance.
TasksThe RADIUS Export Utility
 
The RADIUS Export Utility will work with the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 Remote Administration client and the script enables your remote administration client to export RADIUS data from an Authentication Manager 6.1 installation. Chapter 3 Installing and Upgrading Remote Administration Software of the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 for Windows Installation Guide covers setting up the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 Remote Administration client on a supported Windows platform.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE : using the RADIUS Export utility with the Remote Administration software  avoids making any change to the 6.1 primary instance where a change control may be required.
 
RADIUS Export Utility steps:

 
1.Install the Remote Administration client on a support Microsoft Windows server.
    
   Please refer to Chapter 3: Installing and Upgrading Remote Administration Software (page 21) of the RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 for Windows Installation Guide (URL : https://knowledge.rsasecurity.com/docs/rsa_securid/rsa_auth_mgr/61/authmgr_install_windows.pdf) to install the Remote Administration client.
    
2.NOTE: check that the RSA Authentication Manager Remote Mode (remote administration client) is working before running the RSA Authentication Manager 6.x RADIUS Export Utility setup script (patchRemoteAdmin.bat)
    
   Copy the RSA Authentication Manager 6.x RADIUS Export Utility software onto the same Microsoft Windows server as the Remote Administration client.
    
3.Running the script patchRemoteAdmin.bat
    
   A Windows Command Prompt window opens..
    
   Example:

  
 
      ###########################################################################################
      [INFO] To run this script, you must be an RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 administrator
      [INFO] This script enables your remote administration client to export RADIUS data from an Authentication Manager 6.1 in
      stallation.
      [INFO] This script temporarily alters the functionality of your Remote Administration client.
      [INFO] After exporting the RADIUS data, the script gives you the option to restore administrative functionality to this
      Remote Administration client.
      ###########################################################################################
      Do you really want to continue (Y/N)?y
      Enter the installation directory of the RSA Authentication Manager Remote Database Administration client: ("C:\Program F
      iles\RSA Security\RSA Authentication Manager") : <enter>
      3 File(s) copied
      1 File(s) copied
      1 File(s) copied
      1 File(s) copied
      [INFO] "AM6.1 RADIUS export patch applied successfully"
      ###########################################################################################
      [INFO] Installation of the RSA Radius Data Export utility is complete.
      You can now run the utility to create the RADIUS migration package.
      do the following now:
      -- Log on to the Remote Administration client
      -- click RADIUS menu and select Manage RADIUS server menu option
      -- click export to start the export process
      ###########################################################################################
      If you have generated the RADIUS migration package, do you want to restore administrative functionality to this Remote
      Administration client? (Y/N)?

       

    
   Now use the Remote Administration client to generate a RADIUS package..
    
   Example:
   User-added image
    
   Click the Generate Package button..
    
   User-added image
    

  

      …
      ###########################################################################################
      If you have generated the RADIUS migration package, do you want to restore administrative functionality to this Remote Administration client? (Y/N)?y
      ###########################################################################################
      [INFO] It is assumed that you have exported RADIUS server data from your AM 6.1
      [INFO] RSA Security recommends that you remove the export functionality from this Remote Administration client,
      after generating the migration package. If you do not remove the export functionality,
      you cannot remotely administer your Authentication Manager 6.1 from this Remote Administration client.
      ###########################################################################################
      Do you want to remove the export functionality from this Remote Administration client (Y/N)? y
      [INFO] RSA RADIUS 6.1 Export functionality has been successfully removed and administrative functionality has been restored.

       

    
    
TIPShould you get this error..
    
   User-added image
    
   ..instead of seeing the RSA RADIUS Export Utility then check whether the file ‘msvcr71.dll’ can be found on the Windows PATH.
    
   A copy of the ‘msvcr71.dll’ file can be found in RSA SFTP site or RSASCheck and placing it in the C:\Windows\system32 may help.
    
   Download RSASCheck-5.0.88.zip from URL https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-16578 (registration may be required to get access to RSASCheck if you do not already have an account)
