Hi All,

I just setup my ACS server for Windows. It running software version 4.1. I having problems authenticating. I have my AAA Clients setup in the ACS gui use tacacs to authenticate. I the switch key and ACS server keys matching. I have users setup. Here is my AAA config on the switch..

Please check the NDG secret key and aaa client key. NDG override aaa client key.

Make sure you have correct key in NDG>

Re: Cisco ACS authentication problems

That all set! thanks... I have accounting questioned. I set accounting for commands in the switch . Were do I view the report in ACS? In the Report and Activity I don't see the report for commands. I click on Tacacs+ Accounting but that report doesn't have any of the commands that I have used. If I debug AAA i do see AAA recording the commands.

Re: Cisco ACS authentication problems

Here are the command you need on IOS

aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 1 aaa-list start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 15 aaa-list start-stop group tacacs+

These logs are stored in tacacs administration report, so make sure you are checking the correct head.

Still it is not working then check acs code. Incase it is 4.1.1 then you need to apply patch 5 to fix it.

To download patch for appliance,
