The authentication shows successful on the inbound to Clearpass and meets all the policies required for successful login.

However the Palo sits at the login then eventually fails after about 5-10 seconds and indicates incorrect login credentials.

Palo System logs indicate Authentication failure

 

failed authentication for user 'test.user'. auth profile 'PALO-CLEARPASS', vsys 'shared', server profile 'PALO-Clearpass', server address '10.x.x.x', auth protocol 'PAP', From: 10.x.x.x.

What could be causing this issue?

 

Also another question is 


When using RADIUS authentication for management(GUI/SSH) of firewall  do you add the administrator test.user manually in administrators of GUI and specify the authentication profile for RADIUS on a per-user basis???
- GUI > Device > Administrators > adding the user there??

Your error is still on Last Pass:

 

Auth FAILED for user "test.user" thru <"PALO-CLEARPASS", "shared">: remote server 10.x.x.x.x of server profile "PALO-Clearpass" is down, or in retry interval, or request timed out (elapsed time 13 secs, max allowed 180 secs)

@Jatin.Singh   To answer your "another question," you have 2 options:

 

1.  Configure the administrator under Device > Administrators and specify the Authentication Profile, in your example - RADIUS.

2.  Configure the Authentication Profile under Device > Setup > Management > Authentication Settings if you do not want to create a local account for every administrator.  Only RADIUS, TACACS+ and SAML methods are supported.  With this method you will need to create an attribute on the authentication server that defines the role of the administrator.  You should also restrict the users as well.
