    Extreme switch is under TACACS authentication and I could not move from execution level (>) to configuration level(#) . see below commands and error

    Slot-1 NEOS-PS-FWswitch.6 > show configuration
    This user does not have permissions for this command.

    My question : what is the way to move from one level to next level?

    Hello!

    You have to correctly configure privileges (level 15) in TACACS+ server.

    Thank you!

    Does it mean that there is no equivalent command to go configuration mode like in case of cisco

    "enable" ?

    On EXOS switches, once logged in, you're in "enable" mode - it's like some cisco devices where your username is automatically in 'enable'

    Looking at the message that comes back, that's coming from the TACACS server telling you "you're restricted". As Alexandr said, you'd need to set the appropriate command rights and/or levels for your user on the TACACS server's config.

    As a last resort, turn off the tacacs server, and log in with the locally defined admin user on the switch 😉 At least on my switches, if tacacs isn't available, it falls back to local users - but ONLY if the tacacs server isn't available.

    Just to add, this is where you have to edit the authorization.xml file, for to be logged in to Extreme switches in enable (admin) mode...

    Under the AutoExec section, you have to add

    (Set)priv-lvl=15(/Set)

    but replace the ( and ) with < and >
