RADIUS = "Password required, but none set" Message

I have a number of C3750X L3 switches, all running 15.0(2)SE2 images.  I configure an enable secret and telnet password and all is well when I log in.  Then I create a local account and configure my RADIUS parameters.  I can log in with my RADIUS credentials via SSH, but when I issue the enable command I get the message "Password required, but none set" before the password prompt.  Entering my enable password works and no functionality seems to be failing.

Besides setting an enable password (in addition to the enable secret)--which doesn't make the message go away--I don't know what other password it could be wanting.

What password is required?  Where/how do I set it?

Thanks,

Kevin

RADIUS = "Password required, but none set" Message

Hi Kevin,

just a wild guess: Do you have RADIUS configured as authentication method for enable:

aaa authentication enable default group radius [...]

If you want to use the local enable password instead, configure

aaa authentication enable default enable

If that's not the reason, could you post the aaa- and the line vty-config?

Hope that helps

Rolf

This was it exactly.  I chose to use the local enable password for the time being.  Thank you very much.
