I am very new to NX-OS, and it has been an uphill battle getting everything working. My current issue is that I cannot get my aaa shared keys to encrypt. They are set on level 7 but when I perform a show run, it shows in clear text on most of the switches. On one switch (identical configuration for now) it has encrypted, but cannot get the others to follow in its footsteps. Does anyone have any advice on what the issue might be?
You can configure preshared keys at the global level for all servers used by the Nexus 5000 Series switch. A preshared key is a shared secret text string between the Nexus 5000 Series switch and the RADIUS server hosts.
To configure global preshared keys, obtain the preshared key values for the remote RADIUS servers and perform this task:
Enters configuration mode.
Specifies a preshared key for all RADIUS servers. You can specify a clear text (0) or encrypted (7) preshared key. The default format is clear text. The maximum length is 63 characters.
By default, no preshared key is configured.
Exits configuration mode.
(Optional) Displays the RADIUS server configuration.
NoteThe preshared keys are saved in encrypted form in the running configuration. Use theshow running-configcommand to display the encrypted preshared keys.
switch#copy running-config startup-config
(Optional) Copies the running configuration to the startup configuration.
