Object Description
Global Configuration
Timeout Timeout is the number of seconds (1 – 1000) to wait for a reply from a TACACS+ server before it is considered to be dead.
Deadtime Deadtime (0 – 1440 minutes) is the period during which the switch will not send new requests to a server that has failed to respond to a previous request. This will stop the switch from continually trying to contact a server that it has already determined as dead.

Setting the Deadtime to a value greater than 0 (zero) will enable this feature, but only if more than one server has been configured.

Key The secret key (up to 63 characters) shared between the TACACS+ server and the switch.
