Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been given the task of upgrading our company servers from Rpath to Centos 6.5. We use Tacacs authentication that was packaged from Rpath in our OS baselines. Well I just downloaded Centos 6.5 Min and now I need to configure these client servers to authenticate via Tacacs. Where do I start?
I haven't seen any config files on the Rpath boxes that would show any form of configuration or key storage. These boxes must talk through Mysql or something for authentication.
Its looking like I might have to start these Centos boxes from scratch but I am not that savvy on Tacacs. Hopefully someone here is.
Question. How much of the tac_plus.conf file needs to be configured in order to get this server to talk? This server is a pass through device for pushing logs. I don't think we have any users and passwords saved in our old Rpath boxes but I can't find a config file similar to the Centos config file.
#If you like to use DB authentication
#default authentication = db “db_type://db_user:db_pass@db_hostname/db_name/db_table?name_field&pass_field
# db_type: mysql or null
# db_user: Database connect username
# db_pass: Database connection password
# db_hostname : Database hostname
# db_name : Database name
# db_table : authentication table name
# name_field and pass_field: Username and password field name at the db_table
