Synopsis
This article describes how to configure SBR to allow users to log into LAN devices that use the Service-Type Administrative attribute and for those users to be given Administrative Rights when they authenticate against SBR.
Problem or Goal
Sometimes it may become desirable to authenticate users to LAN devices that use the Service-Type Administrative attribute so that users can authenticate against SBR to manage those devices.  In order to allow access to manage those LAN devices, it is necessary to configure SBR so that those users have Administrative Rights to them.

By default, if a user authenticates to a LAN device that uses the Service-Type Administrative attribute through SBR, the user will receive Read-Only access to the device.
Cause
Solution
In order to configure Read/Write Access for user authenticating against SBR to a LAN device that uses the Service-Type Administrative attribute, you must specify this attribute in the Return-List Attribute for the User(s) or Group(s) that you wish to give Administrative Rights to.  Doing so lets the LAN device know that the user that is authenticating has Administrative Rights. 

To configure this, do the following:
  1. Open the SBR Administrator.
  2. Go to Users and select the appropriate category:

    SBR Admin Users List
     
  3. Select the User(s) or User Group(s) that you wish to give Administrative Rights to and click Edit to open the Edit User window.
  4. Select the Return-List Attribute tab and click the Add button:

    Edit User
  5. In the Add Return List Attribute window, select Service-Type for the Attribute and Administrative for the Value and then click Add:

  6. Click the Close button and now you will see the Return-List Attribute that you just added in the Edit User window:

  7. Click OK.  Now the user(s) or group(s) that you have added the "Service-Type Administrative" Return-List Attribute have Administrative Rights to the LAN device that uses that attribute for Administrative Rights when they authenticate to the device through SBR.
