My AAA configuration is not working on ASA but its working on my routers.
Not exactly sure what I'm doing wrong  with my configs on ASA as I'm using the same tacacs server for my routers and its working 100%

Please attached my configs and advise.

    Accepted Solution

    on router your server name is "AAA-SERVERS" however on ASA you are using "AAA-SERVER"

    please correct and check?

    I think thats why you are getting following error:

    Attempting AAA Fallback method LOCAL for Authentication request for user usernme : Auth-server group AAA-SERVER unreachable

    I did correct same issue the name is local significant as long the host address is correct you can have any name you like.
