Here is question about the configuration of switch in ccna, to setup a password for a switch is like: Switch(config)#enable password XXXX,but I see another cmd in my test parebook :Switch(config)#enable password level level_# XXXX.as the privillge of admin exec the level is 15 as i know but after I typed the cmd Swith(config)#enable password level 15 XXXX and then I exit the config mode,reaccess the switch the system require the password after I enter XXXX the system does not let me in what's gonna wrong?Is the problem of lever#?how to set the # of level?
Your main problem may be that you are using both enable password and enable secret, in such case the enable secret overrides the enable password, and thus the enable password will not let you in.
More over, if you use this command:
Router(config)#enable password level 15 cisco"
And then display the router configuration, since level 15 is the default:
Router#sh run | i enable
enable password cisco
Level --> Level for which the password applies. You can specify up to 16 privilege levels, using numbers 0 through 15. Level 1 is normal EXEC-mode user privileges. If this argument is not specified in the command or the no form of the command, the privilege level defaults to 15 (traditional enable privileges).
