Console password is gone

Answered Question

All of sudden, my console password is gone.

When the router says..."Cisco2651XM con0 is now available, Press RETURN to get started."

When I hit return it does not prompt me for the console password and yet in my config, the console password is there.

It used to worked. Any ideas? Thanks

I have this problem too.

aaa new-model takes over any line authentication and relies on local username authentication (when configured).

Do you meant to say that if i configured console login name and password and username and password for local login through vty then aaa new-model will force to take username and password configured for vty to gain access ?

Once you enable aaa new-model, the authentication prompt changes from

Password:

to

Username: and Password:

If you haven't configured an username and password,

(username [username] privilege 15 password [password])

guess what ? You get locked out.
