6500 login

We have a 6500 that is requiring a carriage return before receiving the login prompt. And then two login prompts actually appear. This seems to be the same whether or not TACACS is enabled.

What is causing this?

Re: 6500 login

What software are you running? Can you paste output of sh ver?

Re: 6500 login

Via telnet, console, or AUX ports? Do you get the same results whether its telnet or console? What emulator are you using? Any config commands under vty 0 4, or con 0?

We are running CatOS for the switch. We are not using the MFSC.

WS-C6509 Software, Version NmpSW: 6.4(8)

Copyright (c) 1995-2004 by Cisco Systems

NMP S/W compiled on Jan 6 2004, 15:22:58

System Bootstrap Version: 5.3(1)

Hardware Version: 2.0 Model: WS-C6509

This is happening when trying to telnet to the device. The device is remote, so I have not been able to try a direct console connection. I have used different terminal emulators with no difference. I have also taken TACACS off, but that didn't change it. It then just gave the password prompt twice after a carriage return.

It is also causing Ciscoworks to report an Attribute error because it is not receiving the expected prompt.

Re: 6500 login

Did you configure

set banner telnet {enable | disable}

or can you set any motd and check again?

There is no banner telnet option, but I have cleared the motd banner but it didn't change the need for two carriage returns.
