CISCO 2500 ENABLE PASSWORD

Following the info found on the web on how to change the ENABLE password on my 2500 I can no longer ENABLE.

The commands I used were

ena

(old ENA pass)

configure

enable password 7 newpass

exit

Now newpass is rejected when I enable

Any ideas would be much appreciated..

Re: CISCO 2500 ENABLE PASSWORD

you didnt need to type '7'

try this for your enable pass:

'7 password'

-ne1secure?

Re: CISCO 2500 ENABLE PASSWORD

I don't know your case, but just to remember that you should also consider the following CISCO recommendations:

"... When setting passwords for privileged access to the firewall, use the enable secret command rather than the enable password command, which does not have as strong an encryption algorithm..."
