CSCsb07389 workaround

Unanswered Question

Seems CSCsb07389 has been made non-public. Can anyone post the workaround for this bug using an ad-hoc NetConfig job? Thanks.

I have this problem too.

The bug should still be public. In any event, here are the Release-notes:

This is an enhancement request, logged on behalf of a large Ciscoworks / Resource Manager Essentials customer. Like any other enhancement request, there is no commitment as to when this capability would be available. If you are a Cisco customer and feel that this capability is business critical, pass the message to your Account Team for getting an update on what the current status is.

While enable authentication is done (primarily) via TACACS and you have a need to change the local enable pwd which would be the alternate/secondary authentication scheme, attempts to use RME to change the value of the secondary authenticatio mechanism Viz the local enable pwd would fail.


Create an ad-hoc job to change the enable pwd

Note that for CatOS devices you will need to use interactive commands to change the password and allow entry of the old password and new password. See the User Guide for Resource Manager Essentials for details on using ad-hoc templates and interactive commands.

Manually update the RME device credentials, using Change Device Attributes

NOTE: RME does not provide validation of the accuracy of the secondary enable password and so, this validation has to be done manually.
