Password expiration warning

I have configured a new router and also set up a username and password using the following command:

username <myuser> privilege 15 secret 0 <mypassword>
But, I am still getting the following password expiration warning:


% Password expiration warning.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Cisco Configuration Professional (Cisco CP) is installed on this device
and it provides the default username "cisco" for  one-time use. If you have
already used the username "cisco" to login to the router and your IOS image
supports the "one-time" user option, then this username has already expired.
You will not be able to login to the router with this username after you exit
this session.

It is strongly suggested that you create a new username with a privilege level
of 15 using the following command.

username <myuser> privilege 15 secret 0 <mypassword>

Replace <myuser> and <mypassword> with the username and password you want to
use.

I have also checked the config register and it is set to 0x2102.

Please give your suggestions

Re: Password expiration warning

Hi,

I remember similar case and the message was just a banner left in the router config as a remain of the Cisco initial configuration.

Try to search the config and replace the banner with some useful one.

See

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/configfun/command/reference/frf004.html#wp1017571

for details.

HTH,

Milan
