AAA authentication question

Posted on 2004-12-01

I have a Cisco ACS server set up (TACACS+/RADIUS) and I'm a little confused about the router settings for this.

here is what works fine...

aaa new-model
aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ local

tacacs-server host key ****

username test password test

So if the ACS server is unavailable, it will use the lcoal database.

But I also want to disable TACACS+ completely on the console port.  I tried this...

aaa authentication login no-tacacs+ enable
line con 0
  login authentication no_tacacs+

But I get an error regarding the group "no-tacacs+"

Looks like I'm mising something here, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Probably just a typo but I have to check:

    login authentication no_tacacs+  (you have the group specified as "no-tacacs+")
    LVL 3

    Accepted Solution


    no login tacacs
    login local
