I`ve got 2 routers (actually 500) . They are all configured with tacacs. and the configuration is exactly the same.
It is cisco 1700 with IOS version 12.3(2)XC2. When trying to login on Router 2 the tacacs works properly, but when I try to login on router 1 I can only login with password and enable password. There`s only 1 tacacs server. The credentials are the same on the tacacs-server. I need help !!

I did a debug on the routers, and here`s the output from both of them

are you sure the router is using the source interface/ip that tacacs is expecting? Is that address routeable be both tacacs and the source router's perspective?

Failed logs can also be very helpful in seeing what is not jiving or if the attempt is valid at all.

Yes, the router is using the source interface that tacacs is expecting, and yes it`s routable.

80.0.0.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
c 80.x.x.x is directly connected, serial 0/0.17
r* 0.0.0.0/0 [120/5] via 80.x.x.y, 00:00:03, Serial0/0.17
....

ip tacacs source-interface serial0/0.17
