Below is the current version we are running on some switches. Trying to confirm if this version can do TACACS+. If not, what version would be needed?

I did not check that firmware specifically but the current should.
This is done on a c5 just as an example:
C5(rw)->set tacacs enable
C5(rw)->set tacacs server 1 49 mysecret
C5(rw)->set tacacs session accounting enable
C5(rw)->set tacacs session authorization service basic
C5(rw)->set tacacs session authorization read-write priv-lvl 5
C5(rw)->set tacacs command accounting enable
C5(rw)->set tacacs command authorization enable
C5(rw)->set tacacs singleconnect enable
C5(rw)->set authentication login tacacs

Hi Jeff,

I know of a customer who has been using TACACS+ with B5 switches since many years ago, using older firmware releases back then.

Hi Jeff,

your version supports TACACS+ management support. Also, the release notes say: "TACACS+ using single connect is configurable through the CLI but it is not supported in this release"

I would use a newer firmware.

Regards Daniel
