Re: how to get a banner when loggingin via vty on a switch/route

if TACAS+ is the first method in the method list the banner defined with "aaa authentication banner" is not displayed. You can use the global banner definition in this case:

conf t

banner motd §

banner message

§

If you have "tacacs" and "local" as the method list you can use the "global banner" for tacacs auth and the "aaa banner" if tacacs doesn`t work (tacacs server is down). Then the local method is used and the "aaa banner" is displayed -and perhaps stating that tacacs auth is down..- so you know which password to use
