We're finally moving to TACACS for all switch access, which is great. To that end, I'm doing some NCM testing on some switches where we've set up TACACS for auth.
However, I'm running into a little problem when building a connection profile for the appropriate TACACS user (a specific service account). Testing shows that the HP 54xx switch refuses the connection, although an SSH session tested from our poller works perfectly.
This is an iterative project, so we're not moving all switches to TACACS immediately, and will still use device settings for many of them for some time.
Am I missing something here?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
Turns out I was missing something! I overlooked the most elementary change to make - that is, to not use a connection profile. At least now I have a successful test at the node level. I'm still curious as to why a specific connection profile populated with the appropriate credentials didn't work. Strange.
