Problem to obtain startup-config under privilege level

peter.jevos

hi guys

I'm using IOS 15.2 and under this version i cannot obtain the startup-config under certain privilege level ( in this case it is 7 )

i have no problem to get it from the earlier version, also from 15.1

Router#sh privil

Current privilege level is 7

Router#sh startup-config

Using 4414 out of 262136 bytes

%Error opening nvram:/startup-config (Permission denied)

Config:

privilege exec level 7 show startup-config

privilege exec level 15 show configuration

privilege exec level 1 show

When i added cmd "privilege exec level 7 show startup-config", IOS automatically generated new line "privilege exec level 15 show configuration"

seems there must be some "improvement" under 15.2 versions

Any ideas ?

thanks

Pet

Hello,

I have been facing the same issue and have opened a case. Please find the answer I get from the TAC :

==============================================

This is intended by design as a security measure. Starting in newer releases of IOS, the privilege level for file system access has to be configured separately. There are two options to overcome this:

1) Run the command from the enable prompt.

2) Set the file system privilege level via the config command "file privilege X", with X the privilege level number

==============================================

Hope that helps.

Best regards.

Karim
