About TACACS+ Auth

A TACACS+ Acct action authenticates a user against a Terminal Access Controller Access Control System (TACACS+) server. In an access policy, an authentication action typically follows a logon action that collects credentials. A TACACS+ Acct action provides these configuration elements and options:
AAA Server
Specifies the TACACS+ accounting server; servers are defined in the
area of the Configuration utility.
Max Logon Attempts Allowed
Specifies the number of user authentication logon attempts to allow. A complete logon and password challenge and response is considered as one attempt.
For a per-request policy subroutine, equivalent functionality is supported through subroutine settings.
