Unable to configure ACE 20s

I am unable to enter config mode on an active ACE module.

Also, I don't even have the option for any 'sh ft' commands.

It might be an authorization issue with ACS but it doesn't give a 'command authorization fail' message when trying the command.

ACE1/Admin# ?

Exec commands:

  changeto    Changeto another context

  configure   Enter configuration mode

  dir         Directory listing for files

  exit        Exit from the EXEC

  ping        Send echo messages

  show        Show running system information

  ssh         SSH to another system

  terminal    Set terminal line parameters

  traceroute  Trace route to destination

  xml-show    Display xmlized show command result in xml

ACE1/Admin# configure


% invalid command detected at '^' marker.

Does this look like an authorization issue?

Hi Bobby,

The problem is the Role of the user you are using, is probably a network-monitor role. You can check with show users to confirm this.

You probably need to setup the shell attribute in the ACS

If you did not specify a role for your user and password, ACE will take the default which is Network-monitor
