Panorama and PANOS RADIUS Authentication Failing after upgrade to 10.2

L0 Member


Thought I would pass on this solution I found.  After upgrading our Panorama from 10.1 to 10.2, our RADIUS authentication no longer worked.  The root cause was our Microsoft RADIUS server was using TLS 1.0 for the PEAP-MSCHAP TLS handshake and 10.2 REQUIRES TLS 1.1.


The solution is to add the following registry setting to your Microsoft NPS server


add a DWORD TlsVersion with a hex value of 0x3C0

then reboot.  


This value will allow the MS NPS server to negotiate TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1.  


You probably DONT want to enable TLS 1.2 yet.  I found enabling TLS 1.2 will cause 10.1 PANOS to fail the RADIUS handshake.
