Hi Team,

 

I was trying to create a new username in the existing NCS router node.

 

I am trying to use the secret 5 encryption method .

 

While committing it is throwing me this error.

 

"!!% 'LOCALD' detected the 'fatal' condition 'Password is invalid or incorrect'"

 

The script used is 

 

username test
group root-lr
group cisco-support
secret 5 test123
!

 

And how can i give the password in encrypted mode .?

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:(config-un)#secret 5 ?
LINE
WORD The encrypted user password string

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Balaji,

 

Thanks for the details.

 

As mentioned in the link, i am also observing the same issue .

 

The Node model is NCS55A2

Version : 6.5.2

 

Requirement is like I need to create a new local login user credentials with secret 5 encryption.

The script i used is 

config t

username test
group root-lr
group cisco-support
secret 5 test123
!

 

When I am giving the secret 5 password in the clear text, it showing the error.

% Failed to commit one or more configuration items during a pseudo-atomic operation. All changes made have been reverted.
!! SEMANTIC ERRORS: This configuration was rejected by
!! the system due to semantic errors. The individual

username test

secret 5 test123
!!% 'LOCALD' detected the 'fatal' condition 'Password is invalid or incorrect'

 

Also, While giving the password it is asking for encrypted password.

 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:uhn2kl2dctk3rc01(config-un)# secret 5 ?
LINE
WORD The encrypted user password string

 

Thanks in advance
