Local authentication means that an access switch functions as an AAA server to authenticate and authorize access users.In local authentication, user information, including the user name, password, and other attributes, is configured on the access switch.This mode provides fast processing and low operation cost. The major limitation of local authentication is that information storage is subject to the device hardware capacity.
On an S series switch, except S1700, local authentication can be performed on both administrators and other users. The implementations on different models are the same.For the configuration methods, see Example for Configuring Authentication for Telnet Login Users (AAA Local Authentication) in the S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700&S7700&S9700 Typical Configuration Examples
The configurations for administrators and other users are the same.
