Privilege levels not working

I am trying out the Multiple Privilege Level option on a directly connected router - but I cannot get it to work.

This configuration example is not possible...

enable secret level xxx

enable secret xxx





privilege configure level 6 hostname


line con 0

line aux 0

line vty 0 4

When I log directly in I get...

Router>en 6


Router#conf t


% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Why can't I change just the hostname on the router using the Privilege level 6 ???

This should be simple but I miss something.

You must allow access for Gloabal configuration command to a previlege level to configure the host name as host names can be configured only if you have access to global configuration command. Use the command Router(config)# privilege exec level 6 configure terminal
