For the cisco router/switch to have MD5encryption password using the command..
username xyz privilege 15 secret 12345
Cisco documentation saying the 'login local' should not be enabled. Is that true. I have devices with no access issues using 'login local'. I might be missing something. please clarify..
MD5 encryption for the username command is not supported in versions of Cisco IOS software prior to Cisco IOS Releases 12.0(18)S and 12.2(8)T.
You must not have the aaa-new model command enabled on the networking device. You must not have the login local command configured for the local CLI sessions over the console port or the remote CLI sessions.
