I believe that Vishwamurti must have understood the original question much differently than Edison and I did.
Edison is quite right: the operation of enable password and of enable secret are entirely independent. Removing enable password will NOT remove enable secret. If the 6500 is giving an error about no enable password then the enable password was removed and there is no enable secret. Either the enable secret was overlooked in the original configuration or there was a keystoke error that produced a syntax error in the attempt to configure enable secret. But the generation of that error message indicates that neither the enable password nor the enable secret are configured.
The answer is that when you disable "enable password" after configure an "enable secret" you will just get access in line vty with SSH transport to achieve EXEC mode using enable secret. No telnet is permitted anymore after thus configuration. I think this kind of thing is to secure more strongly because "enable password" has a weak encryption.
