Smart Console authentication to multiple Tacacs+ servers

Jump to solution

Hi folks

I have running a MDM version 80.20 and I have configured Tacacs+ authentication for Smart Console login. This works so far....

Is it possible to use a group of Tacacs servers (as it is possible for radius servers), so more than one tacacs server can be used for high availability?

 

Best regards,

Christian

This seems like a big omission and we'd greatly appreciate adding this feature.

Will multiple TACACS+ servers feature be available at all?
Is this feature even on roadmap?

Not aware of any specific plans.
I would engage your local Check Point office with this requirement.

Its available within R81.

  • Support for multiple TACACS servers to utilize redundancy when administrators authenticate to SmartConsole.

Looks like more and more things that were lost in the transition from 77.30 to R80 are finally fixed in R81, just to name this one and the ability to use a log server in a Domain on a MDS.

Will it be in R80.40?

Pretty sure the answer to that is no.

Any idea when R81 will be recommended by Checkpoint?

This usually depends on adoption and availability of a GA Jumbo Hotfix.
That said, if you need the functionality of R81, you can use it now.
