removing username

Have a 6509 sup 32 hybrid which has a username and password configured on the msfc side , we want to take it off the box and use the vty and enable secret passwords . I try removing by doing a no username XXXXX . It looks like it takes it but when I try to logg back in it is still asking me for a user name , how do I get rid of this and have it use the vty and enable secret passwords ?

The config that you posted shows that it has aaa new-model but appears to have no aaa authentication configured. I suggest that you configure "no aaa new-model" and see if that does not clear up your problem.

Try it and let us know the result.

At the risk of stating the obvious have you made sure there is no "login local" under the line vty configuration.

If there is just change it back to login.

In addition to Jon's suggestion about login local I would point out that if you have aaa authentication login configured, that is probably what is prompting for user name. If you do have aaa configured, if you want to keep aaa, then you could configure this to use line and enable passwords:

aaa authentication login default line

aaa authentication enable default enable

or if you have aaa but do not want to keep it then you can configure:

no aaa new-model

Re: removing username

Login local is not an option on these boxes on the vty's .

Re: removing username

Hi Glen,

Check the " login local " command under the line VTY interface. If its there, remove that. If still have issues, send us some old config if you have backed up.
