IOS-XE 4500X TACACS Config

Steven Williams
Level 4
Level 4

IOS-XE Software, Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch  Software (cat4500e-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 03.07.00.E RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc4)

Following this guide which doesn't line up to what I am seeing in the CLI:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/XE3-7-0E/15-23E/configuration/guide/xe-370-configuration/supcfg.html#pgfId-1138705

Switch is accessed on 10.0.0.1/24 (VLAN10) which belongs to vrf 1

ISE is accessed on 10.0.20.60/24 (VLAN20) which belongs to vrf 2

Say within the aaa group server config I am specifying ip vrf 1 and tacacs source interface as vlan 10.

!
tacacs server TACACS
address ipv4 10.20.0.60

I tried this on 3.6.4E on IOS-XE, and it seemed to go ok.

I notice you are running 03.07.00.E.  That train is up to 3.7.3E.  At a minimum you should upgrade to the current version in the train you are using.

These are the release notes.

Tried what? The steps in the documentation I posted?

I had the same error messages, but your post pointed out that you could select the source vrf under the aaa group server config.  Thanks for that.  

I know you probably solved this years ago, but you should set the vrf to 2 and source-interface to vlan 20.  The vrf that the switch is accessed on is irrelevant.
