That message means that the AAA service is not ready yet. You need to wait a few seconds more. What is the real problem? Why you want this to disable it?

I also like to disable it because of "You need to wait a few seconds more" and I don't like waiting.

Why is it even enabled by default (out of the box) if there is only a local account - who should the switch contact for AAA if there is no config/IP on the device..... weird.

The Exos is based on linux. The process responsible for authentication must start regardles of how many accounts are enabled/configured.

Have you tried other Managrment module? I expect you have two modules and one is active one is not active.

Zain, if you're seeing this message on a BlackDiamond chassis, something else is wrong. As mentioned, try the other MSM.
The takeaway here is that you don't have the redundancy that you would expect to have with two MSMs.

I have to say that I also never got the whole "(pending-AAA)" message, I'd kind of personally take the view that if the CLI process isn't ready for a login for whatever reason, don't bother displaying the prompt.

The only thing I can think of is that it is a side effect of stacking and being able to REBOOT AS MASTER CAPABLE - if you didn't have the prompt you wouldn't be able to type that.

Paul.
