Custome Username Prompt From ACS 5.4 Server

Hi

I have an ACS 5.4 server deployed to provide TACACS+ AAA authentication to network devices for the network admins.  Under System Administration / Configuration / Global System Options / TACACS+ Settings I have configured a custom username and password prompt.

This works fine but on one particular device it does not work when I use SSH to get CLI admin access to the device.  When I use telnet the custom prompts are all presented fine.

The device in question is a C3750-24TS-S running c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-40.SE.bin

This has got me scratching my head.  Has anyone come across any similar situations?

Thanks very much

Paul

Custome Username Prompt From ACS 5.4 Server

Hi Paul,

The custom prompt will not work for SSH due to the T+ and SSH implementation.

In Telnet, there is no username sent in the initial packet so a prompt can be sent from the ACS.

In SSH, the username is already sent in the initial packet, so no prompt possible.

ACS will always send custom prompt whenever possible.

Custome Username Prompt From ACS 5.4 Server

Hi Ed,

thanks for the response.  I dont think that this is the issue though.  I have another device that I authenticate to via the same ACS platform.  I use SSH v2 to connect to it (the same as the problematic C3750) and the device presents me with the ACS customised prompt just fine.

Looking at the authentication logs on the ACS for the problematic c3750 it clearly states that the ACS custom login prompt is to be used.  The prompt does not appear on the device CLI though.

Any further thought?

Thanks again.

Paul,

Could you give me the working device information (model and code)?

Let me dig around regarding this.
