- When the user adds a third RADIUS server object to authenticate users for SmartConsole logins, SmartConsole audit logs show this error:
eason_msg = Access denied - wrong user name or password and log_reason = Failed to generate RADIUS auth request".
- FWM debug on SMS shows:
fwm_cpmi_auth_handler_2: Login failed for : Wrong Password
- FWM below debug shows:
Administrator was not found in fwm database".
- Changing the color code on the RADIUS server objects resolves the issue.
- Changing the IP address of the host object used by a Radius server can cause this issue.
The RADIUS cache is not updated after the user changes a RADIUS server's host object IP.
