Configuring TACACS+ Server Accounting (SRC CLI)


To configure TACACS+ server accounting:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement used to specify the TACACS+ server address.

    In the server-address, specify the address or hostname of the TACACS+ server. To configure multiple TACACS+ servers, include multiple server statements.


    If no TACACS+ servers are configured at the [edit system accounting destination tacplus] statement hierarchy level, the SRC software uses the TACACS+ servers configured at the [edit system tacplus-server] hierarchy level.

  2. Specify the source address used when communicating with the TACACS+ server.

  3. Specify the secret (password) the TACACS+ client uses to connect to the TACACS+ server. This password must match the password used by the server.

  4. (Optional) Specify the length of time (in seconds) that the SRC software waits to receive a response from the TACACS+ server.

    By default, the SRC software waits 3 seconds. You can configure this to be a value in the range 1 through 90 seconds.

  5. Specify the TACACS+ server port number.
