Test Authentication Server Connectivity
After you configure an authentication profile on a Palo Alto Networks firewall or Panorama, you can use the test authentication feature to determine if it can communicate with the back-end authentication server and if the authentication request succeeded. You can additionally test authentication profiles used for GlobalProtect and Captive Portal authentication.

Authentication server connectivity testing is supported for local database, RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP, and Kerberos authentication.
