Issue Description
The MAC of a user attached to MA5200F cannot be enquired at Radius, but other else users attached to another MA5200F in the same area could enquire the MAC addresses at Radius.

Alarm Information


Handling Process

1. Log in to MA5200F and enable Debug to gather Radius packets;
2. Look up the authentication request packet of Code=1; it contains the MAC address of user (No. 31 or 26-60 attribute), that is to say, MA5200F has notify the MAC address of the user to Radius;
3. Check the configurations of Radius. It is found that Radius sets BAS type to ZXT64E,so the problem is solved after changing it to Huawei MA5200F.


Root Cause
It is a problem arising from cooperation between MA5200F and Radius; in another word, the type of BAS equipment is not correctly set at RADIUS.
