I have installed two nodes under PoA using Parity.

I normally use this to attached geth to a geth node:

geth attach node/geth.ipc

I got working geth attach using rpc but there is no admin.

geth attach http://localhost:8540

But then I get no admin. I entered the admin into the toml file and the node fails to start.

Is there a way to get this working so that the admin functionality in geth can be used when attached to a parity node?

If you mean you get:

> admin
ReferenceError: admin is not defined

Then this might be caused because it is not running with the admin module enabled. Make sure you enable it by adding it to the --http.api list. Eg. --http.api debug,eth,web3,personal,net,admin.
