tacacs on foundry devices

I am trying to get the different privilege levels to work on a foundry device configured to use Tacacs. I have entered the following lines on the foundry NAS.

aaa authentication enable default tacacs+ line

aaa authorization exec default tacacs+

enable telnet password .....

enable super-user-password .....

ip address

ip default-gateway

tacacs-server host

tacacs-server key HG546$$KLZ

When I connect to the server it prompts me for my tacacs+ username and

password. Once I have entered the username and password I get into the

device but only at privilege level 5 (read-only) even though my username on

the Tacacs+ server is configured to use privilege level 0 (super-user). Therefore it would suggest that the AV pairs are not being passed through to the configured device. Anyone got any ideas?

Thank You

Re: tacacs on foundry devices

In the TACACS server do you have Shell (exec) checked and the privilege-level set to 0 under this users configuration? Can you debug on the Foundry to see if it's receiving the attributes properly (if you have them checked in the TACACS server then I see no reason why it wouldn't be receiving them)?

Are you sure level 0 is the super-user on the Foundry? What if you set it to 15 on the TACACS server, do you see any difference?
