Re: AAA config problem in C4510R

Could you try enter keys on ACS and on switch again??? it looks that keys are not matching ... Sometimes eventhough keys are entered correctly on ACS re-entering of keys is needed


Re: AAA config problem in C4510R

086444: 8w3d: TAC+: Invalid AUTHEN/START/LOGIN/ASCII packet (check keys).

Switch could be using different shared secret key as what is configured in AAA (for AAA client) - due to extra characters or key completely wrong.

Check the failed authentication log (reason/solution) in AAA Server for mismatch key:

*look for mistmatch key at the end of page
