I was changing the username and password on our routers, currently it is as follows
userrname xxxx privilege 15 secret 5 xxxxxxxxxxx
When I enter the new username and secret 5 password, I'm getting this
username xxxx privilege 15 secret 4 xxxxxxxx
Can someone tell me why I'm getting the type 4 password as opposed to typ 5? The command I'm entering is
username xxxx privilege 15 secret xxxxxx
Even when I removed the previous usename and password and entered the new username and password, it still set it to type 4. The strange thing is that it didn't do this with all of our routers, some routers are displaying the new username and type 5 password correctly, about 23 out 150 routers are showing the password as type 4. Two things.
1. How can I fix this?
2. What's the difference between type 4 and type 5? Would it be ok to simply leave teh 23 routers with a tye 4 password or should I make them type 5?
I've also included a screenshot
Any help would be great
