    You can use radius or tacacs authentication to control console authentication.


    6300(config)# aaa authentication login
    console Console authentication list
    default Default authentication list
    https-server Https-server authentication list
    ssh SSH authentication list
    telnet TELNET authentication list
    6300(config)# aaa authentication login console
    group Server-group
    local Local authentication
    6300(config)# aaa authentication login console group
    WORD Group Name or family name (Valid family names: tacacs, radius and
    local)

    Further reference to this is present in Security Guide

    Hi Shobona,

    Thanks for your quick response and guidance ,However we are looking for option to restrict console locally
    About Console password, if it's possible to have a dedicated one ?

    We do not have such capability in AOS switches currently. We can control using only RADIUS/TACACS.
