Description (partial)

- When trying to simulate test aaa command from ASDM we see authentication to host is successful and one more ASDM message where it says host is not responding.

- Configure any random RADIUS server on ASA  and try to test aaa from ASDM, the issue will be reproduced. For example the config on my ASA is as follows:
                aaa-server Duo protocol radius
                reactivation-mode timed
                max-failed-attempts 1
                aaa-server Duo (outside) host
                timeout 70
                key *****
                From CLI I get the following error:
                rahbhosa-asav# test aaa authentication Duo host
                Username: cisco
                Password: *****
                INFO: Attempting Authentication test to IP address ( (timeout: 72 seconds)
                ERROR: Authentication Server not responding: No response from server

- Whereas on ASDM we see 2 messages:
a. Authentication test to host is successful
b. ASDM did not get a response from the ASA in last 60 seconds. Please check to see that the network connections are still up and try to reconnect by refreshing ASDm.

- Using ASDM 7.12
