This indicates that there was a problem contacting the TACACS+ server on tcp/49 from the LMS server. When you login to LMS now, you will be using the local LMS authentication database instead of the TACACS+ server.

If you have confirmed that the TACACS+ server is up, and properly servicing AAA requests, have a look at this thread:

Then there must be a communication problem. Double-check your TACACS+ module configuration under Common Services > Server > Security > AAA Mode Setup. Make sure the TACACS+ secret key is correct with what your server has configured, and again, make sure tcp/49 is reachable from the LMS server to the TACACS+ server.
