    Configuring TACACS+ Authentication (SRC CLI)

    Use the following configuration statements to configure information about one or more TACACS+ servers on the network at the [edit] hierarchy level:

    system tacplus-server {address address;source-address source-address;secret secret;}

    To configure information about TACACS+ servers for authentication:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that adds a TACACS+ server.
      [edit]user@host# edit system tacplus-server
    2. Specify the address of the TACACS+ server.
      [edit system tacplus-server]user@host# set address address

      To configure multiple TACACS+ servers, include multiple values for the address option.

    3. (Optional) Specify the source address used when communicating with the TACACS+ server.
      [edit system tacplus-server]user@host# set source-address source-address
    4. Specify a secret (password) that the C Series Controller passes to the TACACS+ client by including the secret statement. Secrets can contain spaces. The secret used by the C Series Controller must match the secret used by the TACACS+ server.
      [edit system tacplus-server]user@host# set secret secret

      To configure a set of users that share a single account for authorization purposes, you create a template user. See SRC Template Accounts for RADIUS and TACACS+ Authentication Overview.
