AAA problems Nexus 7000 %AUTHPRIV-3-SYSTEM_MSG: Unable to create temporary user

Unanswered Question

I'm having problems getting our Nexus 7000 to authenticate users from our Windows domain. If I set up a user within the ACS server and use the CiscoSecure database for password authentication it works fine.

In the logs on the nexus I receive the following messages when logging on using my windows account.

%AUTHPRIV-3-SYSTEM_MSG: Unable to create temporary user 16894. Error 0x404a0036  - login[20923]

%AUTHPRIV-3-SYSTEM_MSG: pam_aaa:Authentication failed for user 16894 from - login[20923]

We can log on to all other Cisco OS devices using windows domain accounts, its just the Nexus.

Any help much appreciated.



I have this problem too.

No errors the autnetication on the ACS is showing as passed. The problem is I get an access denied message from the nexus switch,

I just noticed you are trying to login with a username that starts with a number. This is not allowed.
