Create new user in ACE module?

I'm trying to create a new user in the Admin context, but can't login with that account after I create it. There must be something simple that I'm missing. Any input is appreciated. Here's what I'm typing to create the user:

username testuser password 5 testpass role Admin domain default-domain

I do a sh run after entering the above and the user appears to have been created properly, but I can't login. I've tried many different username/password combo's so I know I'm not typing it wrong when logging in. Any ideas?

Hi Dan,

If you are entering a plaintext password then you need to specify 0 rather than 5 as the password type. If you use 5 then the ACE will be expecting the encrypted version of the password like $1$9/LL7jbQ$.

I thought this problem was fixed in 2.1.3.

Re: Create new user in ACE module?

The command looks correct.

You've confirmed you're using local auth and not AAA against ACS right?

Does the log show you the reason for the failed login sessions?

Cathy,

That was it. Thank you! We're not up to 2.1.3 yet.
