Hi Scooter


Try the following command:


username admin privelege 15 password PASSWORD


Then apply the login local command to the VTY lines and console line:


line vty 0 4

login local


Hope this helps,

Would you not consider using AAA on your switches (if this is possible), to reduce the admin overhead? Use RADIUS or TACACS, makes it much easier to administer a big group of switches? With a local login as a fallback?


I use this method in my environment. We make use of the full AAA model, and can report on connectivity, etc.


Very easy to implement.
