ACS, Autocommand and CiscoWorks

I have a number of devices that we use for out of band management that run a menu via the autocommand command. Each device authenticates users via TACACS to an ACS server. CiscoWorks can only manage those devices via SNMP as when it logs on to those devices via telnet or ssh it gets a menu rather than a normal prompt.

I have quite a number of other devices that don't use autocommand.

My questions are:

1. Can I somehow setup the device so that the CiscoWorks user can logon using its TACACS account and not run the menu, while all other TACACS logins will run the menu?

2. If I can't do that can I do some configuration on the ACS side so that TACACS sends the autocommand, but only does that for a particular group of devices. I'd prefer for the network management team not to have one logon that runs the autocommand and one that doesn't.

Thanks in advance for any help.
