    Depending on your PIX OS version and what you want to do with the TACACS+ configuration (authentication only, authentication and command authorization, etc.), the commands will be different.  Check out the following URL to get you started:

    I configured AAA on pix and login through ACS user and when link goes down I am able to login through locally defined user, but when link comes up tacacs+ server shows failed for a long duration i.e. 12 min. After 12 minutes tacacs+ server become active and I am able to login through ACS user.
    Why tacacs+ server takes this long time duration to become active?
    Is it possible to reduce the time duration during which tacacs+ server comes up?
