While working in a 3560 all of a sudden I received the message "command authorization failed" while trying to issue certain commands.
It appears I lost my priv 15 authorization. We have seen this before, we do not have access to the ACS to trouble shoot the issue.
I tried logging in a 2nd and 3rd time using tacacs and received the same error whenever I issued a command such as dir flash: , copy tftp flash or show run.
At the time I was trying to copy IOS to the switch, I had a co-worker log in and it was fine for him and he completed the copy.
Once completed I logged back in and all was fine again. We suspect an issue with ACS? possibly a timeout of our TACACS authorization ?
Any help is appreciated.
