Intigration of ROLE BASED CLI to a particular user in local database of a 2811 Series router ?

Basically for integration of the role based CLI to a particular user in 1800 aeries router is as follows.....

(Conf )# username JAMES view SHOWMODE secret CISCO

but when this command is run in 2800 series router this doesn't work so how can this be done in this router.

One more thing to be clear is that when a command run on a router the same command doesnt run on the different series of router why ?

Suppose in 2811 if enable view is run under enable mode this works fine but the same command is run on 3650 there is no option of view under enable why is it so ?

Hi Khurshid,

to answer the question generically: some commands are only available in specific feature sets or in some IOS versions. And some commands are only available after a certain other command has been configured.

The "show version" command will show you which IOS version and which feature set is running.


router#show version
Cisco IOS Software, 1841 Software (C1841-ADVSECURITYK9-M), Version 15.1(2)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)


This 1841 router is running version 15.1(2)T with the Advanced Security feature set.

So more specifically for the view command, I believe this was added in a 12.3T version. Which version are the 2800 and the 3650 running?

And, cli views require that "aaa new-model" is enabled, is this the case?
