This article provides information about NCM supporting RAIDUS and/or TACACS.


All versions of NCM 


NCM does support RADIUS and/or TACACS Server.

For more details, please see the link below:

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



NCM only interacts with network devices and not the authentication server. Though the network device must handle interaction with 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
