Can Global Protect use multiple methods of Authentication?

L1 Bithead

Is it possible to setup Global Protect to use Windows AD authentication for a subset of our VPN users, and Radius for the rest?  I'm assuming this is not possible since you can only set one Authentication Profile under the GlobalProtectPortal, but if there's a way to accomplish this I would love some input.

Thank you.

You can configure an "Authentication Sequence"

In some environments, user accounts reside in multiple directories (Local database, LDAP, RADIUS, for example). An authentication sequence is a set of authentication profiles that are applied in order when a user attempts to log in to the firewall. The firewall will always try the local database first, and then each profile in sequence until the user is identified. Access to the firewall is denied only if authentication fails for any of the profiles in the authentication sequence.

Use the Authentication Sequence page to configure sets of authentication profiles that are tried in order when a user requests access to the firewall. The user is granted access if authentication is successful using any one of the authentication profiles in the sequence.

For more information, see Setting Up an Authentication Sequence and Setting Up Authentication Profiles in the admin guides.

I hope this helps.
