Configures the shared secret string used to communicate with the TACACS+ authentication server.
|primary||Configures the authentication string for the primary TACACS+ server.|
|secondary||Configures the authentication string for the secondary TACACS+ server.|
|encrypted||Indicates that the string is already encrypted.|
|string||The string to be used for authentication.|
The secret must be the same between the client switch and the TACACS+ server.
The encrypted keyword is primarily for the output of the show configuration command, so the shared secret is not revealed in the command output. Do not use it to set the shared secret.
The following command configures the shared secret as “purplegreen” on the primary TACACS+ server:
configure tacacs-accounting primary shared-secret purplegreen
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
The encrypted keyword was added in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
