Please let me know if the following can be done:
Take a command like "show run" and apply it to privilege 8.
I want like to use local logins, and handout separate logins where someone would be able to execute "show run" but won't be privilege 15. This is for a Cisco 6500 running IOS.
It is possible to change the privilege level of show run and assign it to something other than level 15.
You can change the privilege level but you are likely to be surprised at the result when you do. A person executing show run can only see things that they have the ability to change. So someone executing the command at privilege level 8 would not have ability to change anything and basically would see only an empty config.
