Edit a RADIUS Client

Edit a RADIUS client if you need to change its properties, such as the shared secret or IP address. For example, you might edit the shared secret because your corporate security policy requires a password change. When you update a RADIUS client make and model, you might need to update the RADIUS profile attributes. If a make and model is no longer used in your deployment, any unused attributes are marked as unknown.


  1. In the Security Console, click RADIUS > RADIUS Clients > Manage Existing.

  2. Click the client that you want to edit.

  3. From the context menu, click Edit.

  4. On the RADIUS Client page, make any necessary changes to the client. For more information, see Add a RADIUS Client or Add a RADIUS Client Agent.

  5. Click Save.

    After you save the client record, the Security Console displays the secret as eight asterisks (*) in the client properties, regardless of how many characters you entered.

  6. By default, RSA Authentication Manager requires up to 600 seconds (10 minutes) to reflect any updates that are made to RADIUS clients that previously authenticated to the RADIUS server. To change this time, see Change How Often the RADIUS Server Updates RADIUS Client Information.

    Restarting the RADIUS server causes any changes to take effect immediately. See Restart a RADIUS Server.

    RSA Authentication Manager replication notifies the RADIUS servers on the replica instances about this updated client.
