The enable secret will override any enable password that may be configured . Use one or the other and delete the one you aren't using . The enable secret is the preferred password due to md5 encryption and which can't be cracked by those nice little cisco password breakers they out everywhere .

CONF T

no enable password

enable secret XXXXX
