Configuring dead time

Syntax

[no] tacacs-server dead-time <minutes>
    

Configures the dead time for unavailable TACACS+ servers. When a server stops responding, the switch ignores this for a given amount of time and proceeds immediately to the next backup. Configuring the dead time improves server response time as the switch no longer has to wait for connections to time out before contacting the next backup server. The default value of zero disables skipping unavailable servers.

dead-time

The dead time for unavailable TACACS+ servers.

0-1440
