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

line vty 0 4

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.
