Authentication failure via LDAP Authentication using cli

Hello All,

 

My SAN Switches are currently running FOS 7.1.1b with local and AD/LDAP authentication configured. We were able to authenticate via AD previously but recently when we tried to login using AD from putty. we are getting this below message from putty log

 

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~= PuTTY log 2015.07.21 19:25:20 =~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=
login as: ctsik358
ctsik358@10.450.40.31's password:
Your password has expired. Please change your password now.
RADIUS authentication is turned on.
Please specify a switch local account name with passwd command.

 

After the above message putty session will close automatically

 

But we are able to login via GUI using the same password and we are facing this issue only when we try to login via cli, can someone help me understand what would be the issue

Re: Authentication failure via LDAP Authentication using cli

Finally the issue was attributed to expired password for admin account in switch..All remote authentications will rely on admin account in switch. So please make sure admin password is not expired for an successful remote authentication
