Nexus 7000 AAA tacacs+ issue

I cannot get the AAA tacacs+ authentication to work on my Nexus 7000. The following is the logging error I get:

Relevant config:

MCN-CORE-D-7020# show run tacacs+

!Command: show running-config tacacs+

!Time: Wed Dec  7 01:33:42 2011

version 5.1(3)

feature tacacs+

tacacs-server key 7 "XXXXXXX"

ip tacacs source-interface mgmt0

tacacs-server timeout 60

tacacs-server host 172.26.32.200

tacacs-server host 172.25.35.9

aaa group server tacacs+ tacacs+

    server 172.26.32.200

    server 172.25.35.9

    use-vrf management

    source-interface mgmt0

All users get this same error when trying to log in. Any other switch works with that username.

Hi All,

I´ve the same logging errors on my N7K. Have you found the problem and can you tell me a solution.

Many thanks !!!!

No, I have a TAC case open on it. So far it seems it's a problem with the freeware (TacPlus) software my company is using to do AAA.
