Creating Encrypted Passwords

This example encrypts password t1meout1 and creates a password for privilege level 10.

  1. Enable and configure the password. The 0 keyword specifies that you are entering an unencrypted password.
    host1(config)#enable password level 10 0 t1meout1
  2. Display the encrypted password.
    host1(config)#exit
    host1#show secret
