Description (partial)

Currently on a Cat3k/9k switch running 16.12 release we are allowed to configure both old and new TACACS configuration and it prints that old command is deprecated however, it does not work and eventually locks you out of device.

BGL18-B.08-Cat9500-1(config)#tacacs-server host >>>>>>This CLI should not be allowed to configure
 Warning: The cli will be deprecated soon
 'tacacs-server host '
 Please move to 'tacacs server <name>' CLI

tacacs  tacacs-server    --------------- >>>>>>>>We should just have tacacs option here which is new CLI

Cat9k/3k switch running AAA/ TACACS configuration and upgrading from 16.x to 16.12 release gets locked out from switch unless they migrate to newer TACACS server configuration which is mentioned in Cat3k/9k configuration guides.
