Hi Team,

I have tried changing my switch secondary server but it is generating error as "server is already used"
Please reply me ASAP.

[xxxx--H5700--S-1-hwtacacs-tacacs]hwtacacs-server authentic xxxx sec
Error: The server is being used and not changed.

[xxxx-H5700--S-1-hwtacacs-tacacs]undo hwtacacs-server authentication yyyy secondary

I think you have to remove the tacacs config from AAA first.

It could be possible if your primary server is down and secondary already have taken place in that it wont let you remove it, can you please make sure that this switch has reachibility to primary server ? is this the single switch having issue ? can you please share the output of your HWTACACS template by performing "display hwtacacs-server template tacacs"

Thank you.
