TACACS+ enable authentication 2500 Series

Hello everyone,

I was curious if anyone has any experience or similar issues. Here is the problem:

I can enable tacacs on the switch with:

aaa authentication telnet login tacacs local
aaa authentication telnet enable tacacs local
tacacs-server key password
tacacs-server host 10.10.10.151

and I can telnet into the device using my credentials. But when I attempt to enable myself with the same credentials I'm told the password is incorrect.

The TACACS server we use is from: http://www.shrubbery.net/tac_plus/ and we use this one so we can auth against an LDAP/Kerberos setup.

Here are the logs from our TACACS servers:

Thu Jan 29 12:41:21 2009 [7533]: cfg_get_value: name= isuser=1 attr=enable rec=1

Thu Jan 29 12:41:21 2009 [7533]: cfg_get_phvalue: returns password


The TACACS server is a production server and is known to work.

If anyone has any insight or any further questions, please let me know.

Re: TACACS+ enable authentication 2500 Series

Some things to try to isolate:

set primary auth source for enable to be local
set primary auth source for login to be local.

Does enable work in both cases?

I see the same problem - looks like the procurve is not sending the username in the enable packet (i.e. user is unknown as opposed to 'czane'):

A cisco switch works fine (i.e. user in the enable query is 'czane'):

Is this a bug with the procurve tacacs implementation? This "feature" is holding me up from recommending these switches to deploy on our campus.
