Switch authentication issue

We are panning to migrate the user authentication method from Radius server to tacacs server for Cisco switches.

Can any one please help with the procedure or documents?

Start with this document and if you have further questions please come back.

If you are migrating switches on remote sites make sure you start with a switch you can get physical access to just in case you manage to lock yourself out.

Re: Switch authentication issue

Once you have a working config then you should be fine remotely updating the switches. However when you are first testing this it is possible to lock yourself out of the switch/router so if you can test your config on a spare switch. if you don't have a spare switch test your config on a switch/router that is not critical in your environment.
