Description (partial)

If a TACACS server is defined via a DNS hostname, then upon boot 
the ASA will mark the TACACS server as "FAILED".  

If the default "reactivation-mode depletion" is used, then the server 
will only be marked as ACTIVE after the deadtime expires (by default 
it is 10 minutes).

If the aaa-server group is configured for "reactivation-mode timed", 
then the server will be marked as ACTIVE after 30 seconds.

An AAA server is defined in the configuration via DNS name
