Am troubleshooting PA authentication using RADIUS. The user is part of the appropriate AD group for the RADIUS configuration and the PA and RADIUS server are both setup for RADIUS auth.
On the PA side, added an administrator and set their auth profile as the radius profile. When the user tries to login, the PA log shows:
User 'userX' authentication. From: IP
then another message
Authorization failed for user Userx via Web from IP : Invalid role

While I cannot remember the exact error we were seeing, however our usernames had a special character in the begining and the PAN did not like that at all.
Not sure if that is the case here.

when you added that new admin, can you check if you selected his/hers role as "dynamic" or "role based"? Could it be that you are missing role setup? Change that to dynamic just for test?

Thank you for your reply. It's set to Dynamic - Superuser.

OK, next, did you check the box on your RADIUS profile "Administrator use only" (just underneath the profile name itself)?

and if you did, did you also try to uncheck it 😄

few more things that could be useful in troubleshooting:
less mp-log authd.log
tail follow yes mp-log authd.log
and if needed, big hammer:
debug authentication connection-show protocol-type <TACACS+|LDAP|Kerberos|RADIUS> connection-id <0-4294967295>
debug authentication connection-debug-on protocol-type <TACACS+|LDAP|Kerberos|RADIUS> connection-id <0-4294967295> debug-prefix <value>
debug authentication connection-debug-off protocol-type <TACACS+|LDAP|Kerberos|RADIUS> connection-id <0-4294967295>
last, but not the least, a few articles...

I am facing the exact same issue. Did you happen to resolve this? If so, could you please let me know the fix.
