Changing enable password

I am trying to change my enable password on a Cisco Catalyst 3550 switch. I go into Config T mode type the command to change the password exit out and save the config. But when I come back on to the switch and go into enable mode the password is still the same. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for the help

Re: Changing enable password

Hi William

Are you doing this

conf t

enable password xxxx

cntrl z

If so do you have the enable secret which is much better and if configured is the first to be used.

conf t

enable secret xxxx

cntrl z

wr mem

If so another question is are you using AAA and if so do you need to change it on the AAA server?

I hope this helps Roger.
