Thank you for answering that question 100% - much appreciated.


I will roll a ticket with Juniper as their MX series in my testing does
*not* ignore additional VSA's - I just proved it out in our lab. Their ERX
series in particular does ignore additional VSA's and a Cisco 7206VXR I just
tested as well ignores them perfectly.

So far I have tested this on a Juniper ERX and it simply ignores the Cisco
attributes, which was what I'm hoping for.



It has to according to RFC 2865, if it doesn't open a support call with


I plan to float some Juniper attributes towards some Cisco gear at some
point to see how it handles it.  Anyone have much practical experience with
this?  Is it expected to always ignore additional VSA's or is it a 'crap
shoot' depending on the vendor?


Stick VSAs from as many different vendors as you want in the Reply. The NAS
*MUST* ignore attributes that it can't process, it's one of the fundamentals
of the RADIUS protocol.
