Description (partial)

Symptom: When using radus aaa authentication and IOS-XR release 3.4 if the Radius Access Accept message is received which includes a Vendor Specific Attribute (VSA) which IOS-XR does not recognize as a valid vendor ID then authentication may fail. 

Conditions: This problem did not occur in IOS-XR release 3.3 and earlier. In those releases the unrecognized VSAs are simply ignored by the router and authentication succeeds.
