I've been playing around with aaa method lists, as well as privilege levels and have a question about the following config. I know by default that the "default" method list is applied to all lines and interfaces. With the config below, aaa is enabled, but no method list is defined.
When I telnet to the router that has the config shown below, I am prompted for a Username. I enter buck for the username and rogers for the password. I get logged in, but I'm placed at priv level 1 (not 4 as I had expected to be). So, a couple of questions:
Since I did not create a default method list (e.g. aaa authentication login default group tacacs+ local enable), why did it default to using the local database? Is there a "default" default method list (a bit redundant, but I hope you know what I mean) that the router will use if one isn't configured? If so, which methods does it try, and in what sequence? For example, does it try tacacs+ first, then local, then enable?
Why did I get placed into priv lvl 1, when the username was assigned to priv lvl 4?
