PIX Fallback authorization problem.

Hello Guys,

I have a problem getting access to my PIX Version 8.0(4), so we did have an ACS for AAA authentication, but we put it down and we delete the aaa-server command from the firewall to fallback to the local authentication,

what's happen is, some one change the privilege level of the local password from15 to 0 to not use it from our partner to get to this firewall.but he forat to delete the local authorization commande.

so right now, we have a fallback to local authentication and authorization but with no privilege. and this is what i get right now :

PIX-FW-01# conf t

Fallback authorization. Username 'enable_15' not in LOCAL database

Command authorization failed

any idea to resolve this problem,

Re: PIX Fallback authorization problem.

You could have locked yourself out, did you delete

TACACS config pointing to ACS ? is it possible to readd so it refers back to ACS. if not is it possible to create a user enable_15 with priv 15 ?
