CVPN 3000 and TACACS+

I'm just looking for clarification on this point: Once you setup a TACACS+ server in the CVPN you can no longer use the local admin user database?

Is this permanent? Is a factory default the only way to get the ability to use the local admin database again? Thanks in advance.

Re: CVPN 3000 and TACACS+

Just FYI, I did get an answer from TAC about this. Here's how it went:

All via console (the local admin database will always be used for console access)

Remove the TACACS+ server

Add the same TACACS+ server back

Remove the TACACS+ server again

Change the user "admin" password

Now you are able to revert back to the local admin database for telnet & HTTP/HTTPS

Fairly simple process but, finding the actual procedure was a bit arduous.
