Hi Experts ,


small question regarding privilege level 2.


I've configured following thins for privilege level 2 for aome users to restrict access.


username admin privilege 2 password cisco

enable secret level 2 cisco


line vty 0 4

login local


privilege exec level 2 traceroute

privilege exec level 2 ping


After config. above commands on 3845 router i tried to login using privilege level 2 username and password.


Router is asking for username and password ..once i enter username and password i am getting priviled mode directly without prompting for enable password.



Am i missed anything.


what command can used for privilege level 2 enable secret.the router should ask for enable password for privilege level 2 users.


Thanks,

Satish

Hi Satish


This is the normal behavior of privilege command configurations and you will be getting onto the privilege prompt directly..


If you want to enter into enable mode/prompt then you need to key in enable and need to apply the password credentials..


Also under privilege mode 2 you will be allowed to execute few commands not all the commands available with privilege level 15...

Hi Kumar ,


When I tried to configure the enable password for privilege level 2 i am getting below messages.


RTR A(config)#enable password level 2 cisco

% Converting to a secret. Please use "enable secret" in the future.


What should i configure on RTR A for enable password prompt for privilege level 2 users.


I know that privileges level 2 users have few privilege whereas level 15 users have full privileges....


For privilege level 2 users, router should prompt for enable and enable secret passords.


Thanks,

Satish

Hi Satish


do you want to configure separate enable password for the privilege level 2 profile ?


Normally the enable password/secret defined globally can be used as a unique key for getting into enable mode...


So if you have configured enable secret or password already you can make use of the same to get on to enable mode from privilege level 2...
