Unable to logon using admin account on a cisco mds switch

Jump to solution

I have a cisco MDS 9710 switch with TACACS enabled. I am unable to logon using the admin account. Getting access denied. Tried resetting the password for the account but even then logon doesn't work.

Could someone point out what is wrong.

I believe it has to do with TACACS being enabled, As it is blocking login's using local accounts.  In ours we have an LDAP group configured via TACACS that allows logins.
