RADIUS with CHAP not working

RADIUS with CHAP protocol for authentication will not work even though LDAP does from the same two Microsoft 2012 servers. I have utilized the CLI "test authentication" to confirm the findings, here are facts;


  • Palo Alto  running 8.1.13 
  • Microsoft 2012 Server RADIUS Standard selected (updates are current)
  • RADIUS with CHAP does not work
  • LDAP works flawlessly (Type of authentication: plaintext dangerous)

If there is anyone who knows how to configure a Palo Authentication with RADIUS using CHAP on a Microsoft 2012 Server, please enlighten me.


Thanks in advance
