LDAP --authspec

    Hello All,

    I have an easy and quick question. During the LDAP setup on my Brocade 6520, if I want to keep being able to login using the "local" accounts, the command "aaaconfig --authspec "ldap;local"  needs to be ran correct?

    If I mistakenly didn't run this command would I really not be able to log into the switch using let's say, the local "admin" account or for that matter the "user" account?

    I know part of the process for LDAP setup is to run the "aaa" command I mentioned but I simply want to know the good and bad of this process with that command.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, Make sure you have both Ldap & Local passing through aaaconfig. This way we will have redundancy. If you passed only LDAP and somehow it didn't work then we need to manually connect the switch and change the aaaconfig settings. We have ran into that situation.
