Question regarding user login on a 2626

Hi!

I have a smaller problem but its annoying and i wanna understand the reason behind the problem.

I have several 2626 switches with similar configuration, the only thing seperating them is the different VLANS's they are using.

They have the same password/users added (operater/manager).

The issue that im having is that 1 of switches want a login name when using telnet, the rest just goes directly to "enter password"

No radius is configured, and the only AAA I have in the confs are
"no aaa port-access authenticator active"

I have gone through the confs line by line but I cannot understand why just this 1 switch wants me to enter a username?

Anyone got a hint for a beginner?

Thanks

Hi

The reason is the one with username and password has enabled password with username different than the manager username.

To enable password, the command is:

Switch(config)#enable password manager
if you hit enter here, you will be asked for password they verify it.

Or you can use:
Switch(config)#enable password manager username
if you enter here, the user name you entered will be used as a manager username, and you will be asked to enter the password.

Good Luck !!!

Hi and thanks for the responce

I might understand the problem but let me check first

Is it possible that the guy who configured the switches made the "Switch(config)# password manager user-name manager" Which causes this problem on this switch?

And that I should just do "(config)# no password manager user-name manager" To remove that user and then it will be just default "manager" user on the switch?

Hi

use: Switch(config)#no password all
then if you don;t want a username prompt, then use:
Switch(config)#password manager ... then hit enter and type the password then verify it.

Good Luck !!!
