How to add new vendor to Juniper Steel-Belted Radius (SBR)

0-Head to /opt/JNPRsbr/radius

1-Add the vendor definition in vendor.ini inside radius directory


-note the dictionary name and the “send-class-attribute” either set to yes or no

-if you’ve multiple products for same vendor, then you need to write multiple instances for the previous section and make it point to same dictionary file.

2-Create a new file (<VendorName>.dct) inside radius directory and define the required attributes (first thing is to include the radius.dct dictionary)


3-Include the vendor name inside dictiona.dcm file


4-restart the SBR and check for any errors appear in logs

How Does it work?

Dictionary files must be placed in the same directory as the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier daemon. During initialization, Steel-Belted Radius Carrier reads the file dictiona.dcm in the server directory to get a list of files with an extension of .dct (standard dictionary files) and uses the list to create a “master dictionary, which includes all known attributes.
