Do S series switches perform local authentication when authentication accounts do not exist on the HWTACACS server

After the authentication-mode hwtacacs local command is executed on an S series switch to configure the authentication mode, the switch starts local authentication after the HWTACACS server does not respond.
If an authentication account does not exist on an HWTACACS server, the server returns an authentication denial packet to the switch. In this case, the switch does not perform local authentication.
