This is normal, that is the builtin account that uses the passwd password. You cannot change this account username.


You can change the password of it with :


passwd [YOURPASSWORD]

Hi,


what you can do is you can add other usernames and passwords with the command:


username test password test

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL


this means you are authenticating SSH users with the username and password created locally...
