About remote AAA with TACACS+

Remote AAA provides the following for your Aruba switch:

  • Authentication using remote TACACS+ AAA servers.

  • Authorization using remote TACACS+ AAA servers, providing fine-grained command authorization.

  • Transmission of locally collected accounting information to remote TACACS+ servers.


For switches that support multiple management modules such as the Aruba 8400, all AAA functionality discussed only applies to the active management module. See also AAA on switches with multiple management modules in the ArubaOS-CX High Availability Guide.
