RADIUS server for VPN question?

I've enabled RADIUS option on Meraki dashboard so users can login with their Active Directory / Windows account.  This is working.  I have 2 RADIUS servers, and I have both of them added in the Meraki dashboard.

 

My question is, since I have 2 RADIUS servers, do they do 'load sharing'?  For example, does all the RADIUS requests go to the first RADIUS server all the time or does the second RADIUS server take over automatically?

 

 

Plus, I have some users that doesn't log out of VPN when they're done and put their computers to sleep.  But sometimes they get an error (756 This connection is already being dialed.) when they try to connect again.  If they sign out / restart their laptops and try again this works.  

 

Lastly, does Meraki have any plans to make a 10GB router?  My ISP speed is 100 Mbps / 100 Mbps.  Almost all my switches at work is 10GB.

Kind of a big deal

Re: RADIUS server for VPN question?

As to your first question:

No, the first configured RADIUS server will be used until it isn't reachable anymore from the NAD. Then it will automatically fail over to the second, third, ... one.

 

As to the last question:

Please note that this is a community forum. Of course there are some fellow Meraki-employees helping us out here, but the best option would probably be getting in contact with your sales rep.

The Meraki MX250 and MX450 both have 10Gbe interfaces - but they are not for home use.  They are designed for data centres.

That's a Microsoft issue that one.  Nothing Meraki can do about it.
