Resolution

Question:  “Is there a way to increase TIMEOUT value for MFASTC connecting Radius server?”

Answer:
No. AAM (MFASTC) doesn’t have a timeout setting. I believe the default Radius timeout is 60 seconds. (would need to find out) Radius server may have a timeout setting.

Question:“Is there a way to specify a secondary Radius server IP address?”

Answer:
No. Only one server for RADIUS factor. Just you would call it primary-only.

Question:“What does MAABURAD do when we run this program to configure MFASTC?”

Answer:
The data (factor, hostname, secret, etc.) is stored into the Top Secret VSAM file for access by AAM (MFASTC) at startup
