Re: Disable "Admin" account

On the commandline, you can use "mgmt-user localauth-disable" to disable management users if there is a response from the radius or TACACS server:


Unchecking "Allow Local Authentication"on the GUI under Configuration> Management> Administration is the same parameter and will disable local management users whenever there is a response from a radius or TACACS server when logging into the management interface.
