RADIUS replication synchronizes data on the RADIUS replica servers with the data on the RADIUS primary server. The primary server detects when an administrator changes RADIUS data through the Security Console and sends all RADIUS data that can be replicated to the replica servers. If no changes have been made, the primary server does not replicate any data.

The following table lists the possible values of the status for RADIUS servers:

                                                              

Server

Status

Description

Action

Primary

Cannot determine status

The RADIUS primary server may be down.

Verify that the primary instance running the RSA RADIUS service is up.

For more information, see Verifying RSA RADIUS Replication.

Out-of-Sync

The data on the RADIUS primary server has changed and needs to be replicated to the RADIUS replica servers.

If periodic replication is enabled, none. If periodic replication is not enabled, initiate replication.

Synchronized

In a deployment with RADIUS replicas, the RADIUS primary has no changes to replicate.

In a deployment with a RADIUS primary only, there are never any changes to replicate.

None.

Replica

Cannot determine status

The RADIUS replica cannot connect to the RADIUS primary.

Verify that the primary instance running the RSA RADIUS service is up.

Verify that the replica instance running the RSA RADIUS service is up and can connect to the primary instance.

For more information, see Verifying RSA RADIUS Replication.

Initiating Data Transfer

The RADIUS primary is attempting to start replication of data to the replica.

None.

Out-of-Sync

Changes to data on the RADIUS primary need to be replicated to the replica server.

If periodic replication is enabled, none. If periodic replication is not enabled, initiate replication.

Synchronized

The data on the RADIUS primary server and the replica server is the same. The replica has the most current RADIUS data.

None.

UnreachableThe RADIUS primary server cannot connect to the replica server.Verify that the primary and replica instances can connect. For more information, see Verifying RSA RADIUS Replication.

package failure

The RADIUS primary server has been upgraded, but the RADIUS replica server is using an earlier version of the software.

Upgrade both the primary and replica instances to the same version of RSA Authentication Manager.
