Making the A5120 require a super password

I have a combination of HP 5120 switches and 5800 switches. The 5800 switches require you to enter the super command and then a password. I would like to do the same thing on the 5120 switches I have. Is there a way to force this? I have tried changing the user level on the vty device but that does not seem to help. I still log in and have full capabilities.

My "disp ver" so you heave the version info:

Thanks much for any help!

Re: Making the A5120 require a super password

Found that I had authorization-attribute level 3 set on the user. Once I chnage that to authorization-attribute level 1 then I do not see everything. Testing that out now. For some reason, it tells me the "super" password is not set and yet it will not let me create one.
Next thing to figure out.

changed to "attribute-authorization level 0" and while in system I also did "super password cipher " and set the super password. All is now working and should be closer to passing security audits, I hope.
