Change local password on Cat 2950

Unanswered Question
Jun 17th, 2010

Hi there,

I'm having some difficulty changing the local password on a Catalyst 2950. I've logged in through Telnet and have had no problem changing the secret, but for some reason I'm having trouble with the local username/password pair. Can you help me out with this?

Thank you,

Jason

I have this problem too.

Jason,

If you're using the local database on the router, you can see it with ''sh run | i username''

To remove a user, you do:

no username privi <0-15> password

What's the problem that you're having?

The problem I'm having is that I don't know how to change the local password. Can I do this without removing the current username?

What do you mean with local password? The enable password?

To change the enable password, you do:

enable password

or

enable secret

As Suggested if you want to change the enable password or enable secret password just configure the following thing

Router(config)#enable password cisco

Router(config)#enable secret peter

and if you want to change the local database username password,if you do no then you remove the username and once aging create the username with new password.

username admin priv 15 password cisco

username bob priv 7 password cisco

Hope to Help !!
