RADIUS Authorization / bash console?




We're using RADIUS for Authorization. For Administrators, we provide the following Attributes to the LTM:



F5-LTM-User-Role Administrator


F5-LTM-User-Info-1 rw


F5-LTM-User-Partition Common


F5-LTM-User-Shell bpsh



Remote Role Configuration on LTM:


remoterole {


role info xy-admin {


attribute "F5-LTM-User-Info-1=rw"


console "%F5-LTM-User-Shell"


line order 2


role "%F5-LTM-User-Role"


user partition "%F5-LTM-User-Partition"








With this configuration everything works fine, but we're not able to set the console to bash. We tried the following:







Is there a way to set the console attribute to a custom shell exept tmsh/bpsh?


(We're aware, that using '!/bin/bash' within bpsh starts a bash with superuser rights, but we prefer a direct shell configuration with the console attribute).



Any Ideas?


Thanks, Rolf

  • Hi Aaron,



    thank's a lot for your fast answer.


    I think we will stay with '!/bin/bash'....
