Yep that's what it says!!

I am not sure however, if either the switch or RADIUS has been
configured correctly.

The switch config I pulled from both the Wiki and the Cisco
configuration guides however, they mostly are for RADIUS based login
authentication - of course I went to the MAB portion.

I have attached the Cisco config to my initial posting and I know it
would be off-topic here but since it is relevant I thought that maybe
somebody could help :-)
