AAA Authentication


I have successfully authenticated a Brocade SAN Switch to a Cisco ACS, however, I can only get user privileges and not admin.

When I log in I get the message:

"Switch role not specified, use default"

I have read lots of documentation and posts, but cannot find the answer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to resolve this problem?
