  • Cisco Employee,

If you are using aaa authentication for the enable password the you set it under the user in TACACS.


If not then it defined statically in the ASA with "enable secret ...".


I hope it helps.

I don't understand.


The enable password (locally define on the router/switch) is with the command enable password or enable secret that you can change it.


You're saying you have a TACACS+ server and you want to change the TACACS+ enable password?

So, the password is locally defined on the device or on the TACACS+ server.

Hi Sunil,


I think you want to change the enable password that is set through Tacacs server.

chpass utility is responsible for all such password changes

while on telnet or ssh session when prompted for password, instead of entering the existing password just hit enter.

YOU WILL BE ASKED TO ENTER OLD PASSWORD. Enter existing password and hit the enter key.

Now you will be prompted to enter a new password. Enter new password and hit enter and will be prompted for reconfirmation.



Please rate if that helps.
