You may need to modify one or more RSA RADIUS server files. For example, you may need to edit these files if you are modifying logging options or configuring a RADIUS client that has special attribute names that need to be included in the RADIUS profiles.

Edits apply only to the RADIUS server on which you make the changes.

Note:  Be cautious when editing the configuration files. The changes that you make are not validated, and the existing file is overwritten with the new content. For a detailed explanation of the syntax used in the configuration files, see the RSA Authentication Manager RADIUS Reference Guide.

Before you begin 

You must have Super Admin and Operations Console administrator credentials.


  1. Log on to the Operations Console on the RSA Authentication Manager instance hosting the RADIUS server.

  2. Click Deployment Configuration > RADIUS Servers.

  3. If prompted, enter the Super Admin User ID and password, and click OK.

  4. Select the RADIUS server hosted on this instance, and select Manage Server Files from the context menu.

  5. On the Manage Server Files page, do one of the following:

    • Click the Configuration Files tab to see the configuration files, such as .conf, .aut, and .ini.

    • Click the Dictionary Files tab to see the RADIUS dictionary files.

  6. Select the file that you want to edit, and select Edit from the context menu.

  7. Edit the text file, and click Save.

  8. Click Save & Restart RADIUS Server for the changes to take effect.

After you finish 

You must copy to other RADIUS servers any edits that must be synchronized across the environment, such as edits to .dct files. To copy edits to another RADIUS server in the deployment, select the appropriate RADIUS server from the Manage RADIUS Server page, and copy or make the edits to the replica.
