This month’s reader tip from Syed Khushnud Amer Ali Shah Gilani demonstrates how to test an AAA-server authentication.

test aaa-server [authentication|authorization] <aaa_server_group> [host <name>|<host_ip>] username <user> password <pass>

For example:

ASA# test aaa-server authentication TACGroup username johndoe password cisco123

if authentication is successful (output mentioned below)

INFO: Authentication Successful


if authentication fails (output mentioned below)

ERROR: Authentication Rejected: Unspecified
