The customer was seeing a problem when the IPSA domain level login and / or enable passwords were changed. Even though there were no configuration activities going on TACACs account would become locked, because IPSA was attempting access with the old password. The customer would have to restart the network processor(s) in their system every time they wanted to change the passwords.
