Initially, when authentication is enabled, at least one method should be enabled. If both methods are enabled, the external (RADIUS) authentication will be tried first. If this fails, SBC will fall back and try local authentication. The login attempt will be rejected if both the attempts failed.
Each SBC user is provided a private home directory for SFTP and files used by the CLI (refer to "Unique Home Directories" section on the page Managing SBC Core Users and Accounts). When using Radius authentication, users are only known to the Radius server and therefore do not have private home directories on the SBC. To create these home directories, you must also create Radius users on the SBC (refer to Local Authentication - CLI).
