Overview

Configured Panorama to authenticate to Radius Cisco Secure ACS server. Imported the VSA file and set up the Panorama server in Radius ACS and the Radius ACS server in Panorama.

Issue

When trying to log into Panorama with the ACS user getting: "invalid username or password". The ACS log is showing an attempt form Panorama to login but failed with the error: External DB user invalid or bad password.

Resolution

Use the following CLI command to examine the authentication logs and look for an error message:
> less mp-log authd.log 

A successful login message is shown below:
