The command

aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+

will log all conf t requests directly to the Tacacs server

Try the following commands -

logging host ( sys log Ip )

logging trap informational

else try this command also

logging facility user

Actually the command aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+ will send accounting records for creation of exec process (when users log on) but will not send accounting records for config t. If you want to create accounting records for config t, you will need this command aaa accounting commands 15 default start-stop group tacacs+.


Note that these send accounting records to a TACACS server not to syslog. Your original post indicated that you need to send them to syslog. I am not aware of any way to log to syslog when someone enters the config t command. Would reports from the TACACS server be an acceptable substitute?
