WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

This article provides information about NCM support for Diameter, RADIUS, or TACACS .


All versions of NCM 


NCM supports adding a Diameter, RADIUS, or TACACS server.

For more details, please see the link below:


NCM Administrator Guide

Third Party Authentication is done if a network administrator sets up third-party authentication, such as a Diameter, RADIUS, or TACACS server. The admin must create valid accounts and permissions in the authentication server database for the appropriate SolarWinds NCM users.



NCM only interacts with network devices and not the authentication server. Though the network device must handle interaction with Diameter, RADIUS, TACACS, or any other authentication server, special logic in the relevant NCM component (SWTelnet9) handles the RADIUS authentication prompt, since devices connected to the RADIUS server may have a slightly different logon flow.

This is also supported in older versions of NCM. See the link below:
