AD user based TACACS authentication

‎06-14-2018 02:25 PM

Hello,

 

I need to configure a bunch of EX switches for external credentials based authentication. I tested with this configuration and it works well.

 

 

set system login user remote full-name "Default remote user template"
set system login user remote uid 100
set system login user remote class super-user

set system tacplus-server <ip_address> secret <password>
set system tacplus-server <ip_address> source-address <ip_address>

set system authentication-order [ tacplus password ] 

 

I am wondering why we need to created a local user  named 'remote' for this to work. Is there any security concern in doing that?
