Hammer & Screwdriver Radius

Hi all

I have no idea what I am doing, I think I am learning...the previous linux admin left the company and I volunteered to help.

My first task is to create a user (X) account in the radius. I was able to do that.. This user (X) will be login in to a cisco device same as user (Z) .

Now I went to the VI user file and created the account:

userX Service-Type == Framed-User
Bay-User-Level = 2,
Cisco-AVPair = "shell:priv-lvl=15",
Fall-Through = No
userZ Service-Type == Framed-User
Bay-User-Level = 2,
Cisco-AVPair = "shell:priv-lvl=15",
Fall-Through = No

userZ is able to login to cisco devices but userX not able to

[terminal] ~$ telnet x.x.x.x (cisco device)
Trying x.x.x.x...
Connected to ciscodevice (x.x.x.x).
Escape character is '^]'.

User Access Verification
Username: userx
% Authentication failed.

I think I need to restart the radiusd for the change to take effect. but not sure.. I need this working if you can help me

If I read, and you posted, correctly, you created userX and logged in asuserx - who is not existent.
