Yes, you can do it.


Configure a username and password with enable secret on the device first. Like


Username Cisco secret abcdef

enable secret cisco


Then configure the line console to use a local authentication:


Line con 0

login local


this will force the user to use the secret password defined for the profile.


HTH,Please rate if it does.
