Tacacs authorization for Nexus5000 on ACS

Unanswered Question
Dec 16th, 2009

I'm trying to configure authorization for a Nexus5020 and I cant find what I'm supposed to configure in ACS...

If I wanted to do Radius, it would be easy, simply provide as a Cisco-av pair " shell:roles=roleA ". The documentation does not say anything about configuring attribute for tacacs.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have this problem too.

Here is a link for the config on the Nexus:


If  this is what you are working with and you are using the GUI on the ACS, all you need to configure is:

allow the ip address of the Nexus to talk to the ACS

configure a pre-shared key on the ACS under TACACs

It is very similar to setting up radius.

Hope this is what your looking for.

Hello Dominic,

I am trying to set up my cisco switches to use Radius using my  ACS, however I am not finding any documentation do you still have the documentation for how to set up radius on ACS. If you have examples that would be helpful too, thanks!
