If config is not saved, Please reload it so that it comes back without TACACS config.

This error is related to AAA authorization not being enabled on the switch.

When you try to config again, Please also put a fallback mode to local authentication and authorization. What would have happened is that you have only enabled authentication with the AAA authorization. Please enable authentication along authorization.
