disabling enable?

Answered Question
Mar 19th, 2008

Using new model aaa with local users on recent IOS, can I let a user do everything except run the "enable" command to enter privileged mode?

Then a read-only user would be unable to enable even if they knew the enable secret, and admins would need two passwords to change things.

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

Thanks, JG. I may have learned something trying to apply the info:

Best I can tell, in the IOS security model, a user defined as privilege 15 is NOT at 15 when they first log in, but at 1. They must enter enable and reenter their password to reach 15. (True??)

So to "disable enable" I must

- create a user at priv 0

- add the show commands to priv 0

- and elevate "enable" to priv 1

I think.
