Applies ToRSA Authentication Manager 6.1
RSA Steel belted radius 6.1
Patch 1 and Patch 2 are available for Radius 6.1. It is important to identify the patch level on RADIUS before troubleshooting.

On UNIX: 

1) In the RADIUS log:
- Go to the installation directory for RADIUS.
- When RADIUS starts, it writes the internal version to the logfile: yyyymmdd.log.
- If you know that RADIUS was started on a particular day you can look at that single log file for the version.
- Or, search all log files for a line ?Version:?
  for example: grep ?Version:? *.log
- To identify the RADIUS update by its internal revision:
  Version 5.20.1867 is associated with release 6.1.0
  Version 5.20.2173 is associated with update 6.1.1
  Version 5.20.2259 and 5.20.2269  is associated with update 6.1.2 

Version 5.20.2341 is associated with the  re-release with a different database, and requires at least 6.1.2 for proper operation

2) Refer to the version of RSA ACECLNT
- Go to the installation directory for radius.
- Locate the shared library file: libaceclnt.so
  (libaceclnt.sl for HP-UX).
- Invoke the following "strings" command to extract and search for the version string:
    strings libaceclnt.so | fgrep '@(#)RSA'
- Look for a string in the output such as:
    @(#)RSA ACE/Agent Version 6.1 [294]
  this is the version.

On Windows:
(On windows this is shared in system32 so might not be reliable if other RSA agents are installed)
3) Look at the version of the RADIUS executable:

- In the RADIUS install directory, look at the version of the main radius executable radius.exe (on windows).
- On UNIX, use strings to search for the ?Version? string in the executable.
- Or in windows, the file version will pop-up in a balloon when
  your mouse selects the executable or else use file Properties.
- To identify the RADIUS update by its internal revision:
  Version 5.20.1867 is associated with release 6.1.0
  Version 5.20.2173 is associated with update 6.1.1
  Version 5.20.2259 and 5.20.2269  is associated with update 6.1.2

Version 5.20.2341 is associated with the  re-release with a different database, and requires at least 6.1.2 for proper operation
