multiple authentication methods possible?

Is there a way to configure multiple authentication methods? I have been able to configure the F5 to do remote authentication via either TACACS+ or Active Directory without issue, but not both. Ideally, I'd like to use our existing TACACS+ infrastructure to authenticate our network admins and automated tools (RANCID, etc.) and, if the TACACS+ lookup fails, fall-through to AD to authenticate other users (developers, systems and applications teams, etc.)

  • I don't think so. However,tacacs allows for integration into AD, so you might have a chance there if your tacacs server supports internal and external auth simultaneously. I'm pretty sure the tac_plus daemon did, but it's been a while.
