Cisco ASR 1001 and VTY configuration

Posted on 2011-09-28

I am configuring a new Cisco ASR 1001 router, and I am trying to configure ssh authentication access.  As I go into line vt 0 15, and then do "login authentication vty", I get : AAA: Warning authentication list "vty" is not defined for LOGIN.

Can someone give me some detail on this cmd ?  I would like it so that if someone sshes into this router, local IDs go first, and then it goes to AAA server.

For your third aaa cmd, I needed to use: aaa authentication enable default group tacacs+.  Once I did that, then the login authentication default took.
