Re: Unable to login Catalyst 2948G-GE-TX

I feel while configuring TACACS, under authentication mechanism you have not set to authenticate through local database in case TACACS is down.

In this case I feel TACACS is down and you have not configured local authentication, that's why you are unable to login.

try to disconnect switch from the network and login through username password configured locally. if it is not configured locally access switch through console and then configure TACACS to accept local authentication as well.
