The audit process (auditd) could not create a RADIUS accounting request for the indicated reason. The audit process (auditd) notifies the RADIUS accounting server of user activity on the routing platform, such as login, logout, and execution of command-line interface (CLI) commands.
The AUDITD_RADIUS_REQ_CREATE_FAILED message is logged each time the audit process fails in its attempt to create an accounting request to be sent to the RADIUS accounting server.
When an AUDITD_RADIUS_REQ_CREATE_FAILED event occurs, a message similar to the following is reported:
auditd: AUDITD_RADIUS_REQ_CREATE_FAILED: Unable to create RADIUS request: <error-message>
The cause may be due to a software error in the auditing process daemon, corruption of one of its internal tables, or a memory error in the routing engine.
Examine the following output to help determine the cause of this message:
show log auditd
show log messages
Look for any related events that occurred at or just before the AUDITD_RADIUS_REQ_CREATE_FAILED message.
Perform these steps:
- Restart the auditd daemon. This will not affect transit traffic. For more information on restarting a process, refer to Restart a Junos Software Process.
