How to configure multiple AAA authentication modes on a CE series switch

CE series switches support multiple authentication modes. If multiple authentication modes are configured in an authentication scheme, the authentication modes take effect in the sequence in which they are configured. A switch uses another authentication mode only when no response is received in the previous authentication mode. However, if authentication fails, the switch does not use another authentication mode.

For example, you can configure RADIUS authentication and local authentication in authentication scheme scheme0.


<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] aaa
[~HUAWEI-aaa] authentication-scheme scheme0
[*HUAWEI-aaa-authen-scheme0] authentication-mode radius local
[*HUAWEI-aaa-authen-scheme0] commit
