Hello Rajesh,

if you use TACACS+ servers with aaa new-model on devices you can trace what commands are placed on device and by who


aaa new-model



aaa authentication login ACS group tacacs+ local

aaa authentication enable default group tacacs+ enable

aaa accounting update newinfo

aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 1 default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 15 default start-stop group tacacs+


aaa session-id common


the key point is to have a message to be sent before reload happens

I cannot find the command

logging reload notification

in 12.4 mainline network management command reference.

Hope to help
