Usage Guidelines

The group group-list method refers to a set of previously defined RADIUS or TACACS+ servers. Use the radius-server host command to configure the host servers. Use the aaa group server command to create a named group of servers.

If you specify the group method, or local method and they fail, then the accounting authentication can fail.


This example shows how to configure any RADIUS server for AAA accounting:

switch(config)# aaa accounting default group
