aaa authentication console problem

i have configured AAA on cisco swiches & routers and aaa server is open source free radius. When i try to take ssh of the switch i am able to login to the device using radius authentication. its working fine,but when i try to access switch using console it asks for the username & password & i am able to login the user mode, after then it ask for enable password, but i am not able to login using local password or radius password.



Below is the configuration of switch for AAA authentication:-



username cisco secret 5 $1$tiM.$fk18bg8A/hfumyfe6j9lS2

aaa new-model

aaa group server radius radiuss

server x.x.x.x auth-port 1812 acct-port 1813

aaa authentication login default group radiuss local

aaa authentication login CONSOLE local

aaa authentication enable default group radius

aaa authorization exec default group radius if-authenticated

aaa session-id common



radius-server host x.x.x.x auth-port 1812 acct-port 1813 key 7 01030F145726575B701A1758



line con 0

exec-timeout 5 0

password 7 0822455D0A16

login authentication CONSOLE

Do this:

line con 0
privilege level 15

This will let the authentication go straight to the # prompt.

The privilege level 15 suggestion above will put you into enable mode as soon as you log in. The 2nd suggestion will allow you to use the enable password for login if the local password fails. Neither sounds like what you're asking for.

It sounds like what you want is to be able to use the line password on the console. To do this, change
aaa authentication login CONSOLE local

to
aaa authentication login CONSOLE line

If you want to be able to use RADIUS, but use the line password if RADIUS isn't available, then change it to this:
aaa authentication login CONSOLE group radiuss line
0

By the way, what will happen with
aaa authentication login CONSOLE group radiuss line

If RADIUS isn't available, you will first be asked for user name and password. If Radius fails, it will time out and ask you for password without a user name. At this point you enter the line password.

"local" means the user name and password you configured ("cisco" and the secret password)
"line" means the password you configured on the line itself.
