Re: SAN switch local user access denied



you logged in via the serial console and change the aaa configuration with


aaaconfig --authspec "local"


but you still have issues logging via IP address after running the above. Is my understanding correct? 

And what is your FOS vesion? Can you please provide the output from "aaaconfig --show"


I would suggest the following configuration with testing


aaaconfig --authspec "ldap;local" -backup


to allow the local database to work as backup.
