Authorization in PIX Ver 6.3

I am setting up Auth and Authorization with PIX Firewall. Auth seems to be working fine. but authorization is not working..

The moment I give the command

aaa authorization command TACSERVE, the PIx is locking up and I refer the document

But it does not help. I am using ACS 3.0

aaa-server TACACS+ protocol tacacs+

aaa-server RADIUS protocol radius

aaa-server LOCAL protocol local

aaa-server TACSERVER protocol tacacs+

aaa-server TACSERVER (inside) host xx.xx.xx.xx Dialup timeout 10

aaa authentication telnet console TACSERVER

Any help would be appreciated

Yes. I agree, I am having the same problem. I have had to password recover the pix 3 times trying to get this to work

Re: Authorization in PIX Ver 6.3

Have u made an appropriate command authorization set ?

Cisco says that PIX uses service=pix shell, yet my experience with all the beta versions of PIX 6.3 , eben the one before the release was that it still uses

service=IOS shell.

So try applying a command authorization set of service IOS shell.

Would you mind telling what should be I checking to make sure that IOS Shell has been applied instead of PIX Shell..
