Configuration register is 0xF

We are trying to configure aaa services on the device. When we use the standard config which is working on all other devices, it fails on the 2900xl in the following way - it appears that the 2900xl is looking to TACACS/our NT domain controller for the enable pass and not authenticating against the configured password.

This is our error:



% Error in authentication.

This is our config:

aaa new-model

aaa group server tacacs+ cisacs

aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ local

aaa authorization exec default group tacacs+ local

aaa accounting update newinfo

aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 0 default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 1 default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 15 default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting network default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting connection default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting system default start-stop group tacacs+

Thanks in advance.


Re: 2900x., aaa, enable pass


What privilege level have you assigned for the users? Is it between 2-15. If not, please assign the priv-lvl between 2-15 and see if that helps.
