Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could assist me with the process of changing a local username with level 15 on the ISR. Here is what is on the ISR and would like to know what command to use to change the password:

username admin privilege 15 secret 5 12EO03NVFIAHYTU43UNIHHTGFH

username user privilege 7 password 7 473EIE9J00KCJAIHNCAIHEUHBSH

Thanks in advance,

If you have "service password-encryption" the appliance will automatically re-encrypt your password.

Hope this helps.
