clearpass tacacs login error

Installed the cumulative patch 1 for 6.3 today and since then the TACACS for login to the clerpass is showing the error below. Nothing else has changed as far as I know. Does the "Internal error in performing authentication" point to an issue with policy manager?

Re: clearpass tacacs login error

I have not seen that issue.


You can try restarting the sevices and see if the issue continues.


Please open a TAC case.

Re: clearpass tacacs login error

It appears that restarting the "System auxiliary services" is the fix for this. Cant take credit for finding this solution - it was passed on to me by an Aruba employee.
