I am trying to configure ACS to authorize tacacs+ for our new ACS32 Avocent cyclades terminal server switch. I keep getting authorization failed with service denied...not sure how to proceed. Has anyone done this successfully?

I guess you have,

"config security authentication tacplusraccess yes" for TACACS+ authorization,

Have you tried enabling the "raccess" service?

Interface Configuration > TACACS+ (Cisco IOS)> under "New Services" put a check mark, and under "Service" type,


And Submit,

Then under Group that you have your user,

under group check "raccess" and "Custom attributes"

And in the box type, for example,

port1 = LAB2/ttyS2

port2 =

port3 = CAS/ttyS1

port4 =

port5 = LAB1/ttyS7

port6 = Knuth/ttyS16

Submit + Restart.

Thats all I could get from guide from google.

Hope it helps,
