I don't think there's any way to get the ASA to give you a local user's password in clear text.


If you have enable mode on the ASA, you can change to the unknown password to one that you know and can subsequently apprise the end user of.

If you send config to tftp server and see it from there, it might show you username passwords. I think that this works for pre-shared-keys but I have not tried it for user passwords.


Not sure if it'll work but just throwing it out there
