why is there a TACACS test user configured by default?
We have a number of different Nexus platforms on different code levels and they all have the following bonus configuration, which only displays when you perform a "show run all" rather than just a "show run," suggesting it's a default, except the host addresses match the configured TACACS server addresses. I've also seen these lines in configuration snippets that others have posted online.
tacacs-server test username test password test idle-time 0
tacacs-server host a.b.c.d test username test password test idle-time 0
tacacs-server host a.b.c.e test username test password test idle-time 0
radius-server test username test password test idle-time 0
So, what are these, why are they in by default and can we remove them?
