About question No. 2, if you configure authentication order [tacplus password] you will be authenticated locally if tacplus is reachable and doesn't authenticate...in case you configure authentication order as [tacplus], you will only be authenticated locally if the tacplus server is not reachable...

Dear All,

Kindly, appreciate you help ,

i tired to configure two different tacacs servers on the same routes but i
observed the below :

1- the first configured server is authenticating , but the 2nd one is not ?
so is it possible to authenticate  using both servers ?
2- i can authenticate locally + tacacs although I'm configuring
authentication-order [tacplus password] ? so why ?

config sample :
tacplus-server { {=========================================>this server
is authenticating first
            port 49;
            secret "$898%&asdertynkll*&8778%^"; ## SECRET-DATA
            timeout 10;
        } {========================================> this one is
not authenticating
            port 49
            secret "$9$-vdY46tyh890dr%%@3df"; ## SECRET-DATA
            timeout 10;

 user admin  {=========================================>this user is used
for both servers on the router
            uid 2010;
            class super-user;
