Privilege user mode ---- Enable

When telnet to my ASA 5510,

it took the password I entered.

But when typed "enable" to enter

the privilege mode, the ASA prompted

for a user name instead of a password. Then I entered "enable_15"

with the known password, but the ASA

did not take it? Please see the log below.

Do you know why? Thanks!

Re: Privilege user mode ---- Enable

Based upon your description, looks like you have authentication configured for Enable Command.

Based upon the authentication method that you are using for enable command, that is Local, TACACS+ or RADIUS, you need to use the right combination of Username/Password to get access to this device.

Please refer the below URL for details.

Let me know if it helps

Arul
