TitleSpecial character "#" restriction is TACACS+ Shared-Secret
Question
Can the special character "#" be used in TACACS+ Shared-Secret?
Environment
  • EXOS

  • BlackDiamond
Answer
No, special character "#" has a special meaning in EXOS and it is used for commenting statements. 
Additional notes
As a work-around, the character can be included between double quotes ("#") along with rest of the string to make the switch recognise it as a single string when used as Shared-Secret for TACACS+ authentication.
