How to Monitor the Radius Authentication Server Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise monitors the Radius Authentication server in an agentless manner.

Managing the Radius Authentication Server

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Radius Authentication server so that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. To manage a Radius component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select Radius as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.

  5. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests appears (see Figure 2).
