CISC-ND-000120 - The Cisco switch must be configured to automatically audit account removal actions.


Account management, as a whole, ensures access to the network device is being controlled in a secure manner by granting access to only authorized personnel. Auditing account removal actions will support account management procedures. When device management accounts are terminated, user or service accessibility may be affected. Auditing also ensures authorized active accounts remain enabled and available for use when required.


Configure the switch to log account removal using the following steps:

Step 1: Configure the AAA servers as shown in the example below:

SW1(config)# radius-server host
SW1(config)# radius-server host

Step 2: Configure an AAA server group as shown in the example below:

SW1(config)# aaa group server radius RADIUS_SERVERS
SW1(config-radius)# server
SW1(config-radius)# server
SW1(config-radius)# exit

Step 3: Enable AAA accounting as shown in the example below:

SW1(config)# aaa accounting default group RADIUS_SERVERS
SW1(config)# end
