Hi Devan,

juz issue the following commands, you will achieve what your looking in for.

aaa new-model

username user privilege 1 password xxxx

privilege exec level 1 show

line vty 0 4

privilege level 1

password xxx


u can add the following for a particular user to gain full access.

aaa new-model

username devan privilege 15 password xxxx

privilege exec level 15 conf t

line vty 0 4

privilege level 15

password xxx


lemme know anything else has to clarified.

hope this helps.

try this, you can use any of the customer privilege levels (2-14):

enable secret

username test privilege 15 password --> This one is there for safety

username test14 privilege 14 password 7

privilege exec all level 14 show

privilege exec all level 14 ping --> For extended ping, you might need to enter some specific commands


line con 0

login local

line vty 0 4

login local


HTH, please do rate if it does help,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
