Catalyst 5000 Username and Password.

Hello,

Can a username and password (similiar to local login on IOS) be configured on a Catalyst 5500( Supervisor III 5.5.19)? I have 7 or 8 newer switches at this location running IOS and know how to set the local username and password (login local). I need to configure these 2 5500's so I am prompted for a username and password similair to the IOS switches. I know how to do it through TACACS, but these switches are on a private network and can't get to the TACACS server. This is a temporary sitution until I can get them replaced.

Thanks,

Bob

Re: Catalyst 5000 Username and Password.

set password

Set the console password (used to access the switch CLI).

set enablepass

Set the enable password (used to access privileged configuration mode).

If you need create username

et localuser user password

set authentication login local enable all
