Passing Lease Pool address as a RADIUS AVP



I am trying to add an AVP to the RADIUS accounting message sent when APM client log in in orderto store the Lease pool address given to the client.

I have tried using a Variable assign in the APM policy editor but without success.

I have also created a RADUS Virtual Server and bound an IRule to it, I can create a new custom AVP, but LTM has no visibility on the session variables in APM. The RAIDUS VServer in LTM only see a connection coming from the BIG-IP and has no way to match it to an APM session.


Is there a way to insert the Lease Pool IP to a RADIUS accounting request in APM ?


Many thanks,

are you crafting the radius accounting message after the resource assign?

thanks for answering, Actually no, until I read your comment I was trying to intercept the RADIUS accounting request by sending it to a RADIUS VServer(instead of the real RADIUS server) and then try to add the missing attributes. Your suggestion sounds like a much better option and I have found an article on how to write an accounting response so it shouldn't be too hard to adapt it and make it an accounting request. thanks.

Well the session variable storing the pool ip (session.assigned.clientip) appears to always be empty. This behaviour seems to match sol12706: http://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/solutions/public/12000/700/sol12706 However I am running 11.2 so I am not sure if this kb applies as well,
