IssueHow to turn RSA ACE/Server RADIUS debug on for UNIX platforms
Resolution

To activate Radius debugging in a UNIX environment follow these steps. 


1)  Go to the ACEPROG directory. e.g.
cd /opt/ace/prog

2) Save a copy of the sdradius shell script before making any changes e.g. cp sdradius sdradius.ORIG

3)  Edit the sdradius shell script using an editor such as ?vi?

    ** You may need to change the file permissions to edit this file. **

4)  Locate the line 'if $USR_ACE/sdradiusd; then'

    for example; line 382 in an RSA ACE/Server 5.2.1 sdradius shellscript is where you would find this line

 

5) Change 'if $USR_ACE/sdradiusd; then' to be 'if $USR_ACE/sdradiusd ?x -l; then'

    We are adding the '-x' & '-l' parameters to the sdradiusd program

 

6) Save the changes made e.g. `:wq? is used in ?vi?

    ** Ensure you change file permission back if you change them to perform Step 2. **

7) Stop and restart the RSA ACE/Server RADIUS process

e.g.
ACEPROG/sdradius stop

 

root@hostname # ./sdradius stop

               Copyright 1994 - 2004 by RSA Security Inc.

                         RSA ACE/Server 5.2.1

 

                       ---ALL RIGHTS RESERVED---

Message: Stopping ACE/RADIUS Daemon.

Message: ACE/RADIUS Daemon stop operation completed

 

 

ACEPROG/sdradius start

 

root@hostname # ./sdradius start

               Copyright 1994 - 2004 by RSA Security Inc.

                         RSA ACE/Server 5.2.1

 

                       ---ALL RIGHTS RESERVED---

Message: Starting ACE/RADIUS Daemon.

Message: ACE/RADIUS Daemon start operation completed

 

The RADIUS debug file is called raddebug.log and can be found in the ACEPROG.

 

 

** IMPORTANT **

 

When finished debugging the RADIUS process remember to revert back to the original sdradius shell script and stop and start the RADIUS process.
