How to test local users on a Cisco router with AAA configured on the routers?

I have a network of Cisco 7609 with AAA and Radius configured. But I need to test the local user, password and enable password to see if they work. Is there any way to test this user without removing the AAA?

Thanks for the help experts.

If the switch is looking for AAA and the server is available, then local user will not work. If the switch is unable to reach the AAA/Radius server then local should work as long as it is set in the config to look for local also.

one way to test is to connect laptop on the same subnet as switch and unplug uplink on switch to mimic loss of conectivity to radius, therefore local account on switch should work when you attempt to log on to switch. crazy but that is a way!
