ASA SSH configuration -- Encrypted password is of incorrect leng

Hi Naresh,

Please do not use the word encrypted in the command, the ASA encrypts the password itself.

ASA3(config)# username cisco password cisco privilege 15

ASA3(config)# show run username

username cisco password 3USUcOPFUiMCO4Jk encrypted privilege 15

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
