I have a 3750x with TACACS AAA configured. If I login using TACACS, CLI commands run fine, no wait between commands. However, if I disconnect from network, taking away the ability to hit the tacacs server or I log in using local account (still disconnected from server), there is a 30 second CLI delay. I am assuming AAA is still trying to hit the TACACS server and is using a default timer. Below is a link to a user with similar issues. I read the 2 suggestions but am still unclear as to which direction I need to be looking. Below is my relevant AAA:

tacacs-server host 10.x.x.x
tacacs-server host 10.x.x.x    
tacacs-server key......... 
tacacs-server timeout 10
tacacs-server directed-request

aaa new-model
aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ local
aaa authentication enable default group tacacs+ enable
aaa authorization console
aaa authorization config-commands
aaa authorization exec default group tacacs+ local
aaa authorization commands 1 default group tacacs+ if-authenticated 
aaa authorization commands 15 default group tacacs+ if-authenticated
aaa accounting exec default start-stop group tacacs+
aaa accounting commands 1 default start-stop group tacacs+
aaa accounting commands 15 default start-stop group tacacs+
aaa accounting connection default start-stop group tacacs+
aaa accounting system default start-stop group tacacs+
aaa session-id common

  • Unless you're running over a very slow WAN, set the timeout value to 3 seconds or less. – Ron Trunk Mar 10 '16 at 15:26
  • Did any answer help you? If so, you should accept the answer so that the question doesn't keep popping up forever, looking for an answer. Alternatively, you could provide and accept your own answer. – Ron Maupin Aug 13 '17 at 19:15

Define the local group for the secondary AAA method for authorization, that way if the servers are down it'll use the local priv level for the user account (make sure it's set to 15 for full access) and continue from there.
