Titlecan i login using local account (switch credentials) when radius server is configured and reachable
Question
when switch mgmt-access is configured to take place through external radius server can the local credentials in the switch used for authentication
Environment
  • EXOS All
  • Summit and BlackDiamond series
  • Radius
  • TACACS
Answer

No, local account in the switch will not be effective until the external Radius server is configured and reachable.

 
Taken from Concepts Guide 15.6
Note
You can use a local database on each switch as a backup authentication service if the RADIUS
service is unavailable. When the RADIUS service is operating, privileges defined on the
RADIUS server take precedence over privileges configured in the local database.

The same is applicable for TACACS authentication.
You can use a local database on each switch as a backup authentication service if the TACACS
+ service is unavailable. When the TACACS+ service is operating, privileges defined on the
TACACS+ server take precedence over privileges configured in the local database.
