How to configure Radius on 2960 and 2955

We are trying to configure radius on a 2960 and 2955 switch We  can't see the options to configure radius, do these L2 switches not support radius?

radius-server host 10.1.1.1 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646 key 123456789
radius-server host 10.1.1.2 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646 key 123456789
radius-server vsa send accounting
radius-server vsa send authentication

We get this:

Warning: This CLI will be deprecated soon. Please move to radius server CLI.


What is this? Can someone explain?

The warning message just indicates the new(er) version of IOS will probably not support this feature Eg. radius-server NAME.  The newer version is yet to be available from Cisco. The warning message is allowing you time to migrate to a more supportable configuration (you know, research for a better way to perform your task).

The new command set is indeed like this:

radius server AAAISE1
address ipv4 10.19.250.50 auth-port 1812 acct-port 1813
key 7 01115506555E172F32
!
radius server AAAISE2
address ipv4 10.19.250.51 auth-port 1812 acct-port 1813
key 7 130744101444150A38

Same stuff, different format. You could think of it like the format for extended IP ACLs.

Please click here for Cisco documentation.
When you get to this link, scroll down to the Security, Services and VPN section. Next click on Cisco IOS Security Command Reference: Commands M to R. From there can find a link to the radius server command.
