Configuring Login Password Cisco Catalyst 3750


Good afternoon,

I'm upgrading from a Cisco 2960 switch to a Cisco Catalyst 3750 (ws-C3750X-24). I have just about everything from the 2960s  configuration migrated over to the 3750 except for the login password.  On the 2960 the switch boots, displays a banner, then prompts Login password, enter enable and password.  Is there was way to make it so after the banner the switch will just ask for a Login password without a username for the 3750?

this can happened if you use login local 
instead use login under vty and add password 
this will make you access to SW with only password no username require 

I was able to get this to work by using the following:

Switch#: conf t

Switch# (config): line con 0

Switch# (config-line): password XXXX

Switch# (config-line): login

Switch# (config-line): end

And I had previously entered the command 'service password-encryption' to encrypt the password in the 'show run'


So it OK now?

Yes, it is ok now and performing exactly like how I expected it to.  Thank you for your assistance.  You helped put me on the right path to the answer.

You are so so welcome 


 Not advisable but if you remove login local, it might work.

conf t


line vty 015

no login local
