Error in Authentication

Hello All,

I am getting error in authetication when I am trying to access a switch through tacacs. I have added the switch in ACS server.

The aaa config is

aaa new-model

aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ line

aaa authentication login console line

aaa authentication enable default group tacacs+ enable

aaa authorization exec default group tacacs+ if-authenticated

aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+

aaa accounting commands 15 default stop-only group tacacs+

tacacs-server host 10.201.85.222

tacacs-server key ******

line con 0

exec-timeout 30 0

password 7 104A5A1B1010425E

line vty 0 4

exec-timeout 30 0

password 7 045F58041A261C1B

login

line vty 5 15

exec-timeout 30 0

password 7 08251F4C1C1E5542

login

I know i forgot to add enable password in the config. What's the best way to access the switch now.

Remove connection to the Tacacs server, and the line should fall back to line password for authentication.

Thanks for replying and I did the same thing as you said but I see the same behavior..removing from ACS server it should fall back to line passwords. I am at console and still i am getting the same thing which is wierd ...
