We have implimented an 5520 device and configured it for ACS successfully. I want to also have a local database with a few accounts in the event our ACS server went down. I am having trouble finding documentation for the syntax I need to enter on this 5520 device configuration so I can have redundacy for AAA...can some help with this? TIA, Gary

Thank so much for information. I printed out the pdf. I am having an issue figuring out the syntax to create a server_group? I have look at the command lines but have not be successful. Can you advise on how to give the device a server group name? TIA, Gary

Hi ,

Check this example

aaa-server SERVER protocol tacacs+

aaa-server SERVER host

key $har3dK3y

This command applies the server group to the vty or

console lines:


aaa authentication ssh console SERVER LOCAL <---

For SSH sessions

aaa authentication serial console SERVER LOCAL

<--- For console access

Hope that helps
