3750X Prompts for Device/Enable Password Instead of Local Username/Password

I've got two 3750X switches that were built from a fairly basic template from my existing 3750/3560 switches. However, these new switches ONLY prompt for the device/enable passwords instead of the configured local username/password when connecting by console/telnet/ssh. Here's the config that I think is relevant, sans password strings. Only real difference is that the new switches are running an IOS 15.2 build, the 3750 switches are running 12.4, and the 3560 is currently running 15.0 (pending an update).

 

enable secret 5 string
!
username Administrator privilege 15 secret 5 string
line con 0
 password 7 string
 login local
line vty 0 4
 password 7 string
 login local
 length 0
line vty 5 15
 password 7 string
 login
 length 0
 

Any way to correct this?

Thanks!

Can you add "login local" to line vty 5 15 as well and try again?

Hmm, yes, that works, however I'm curious why none of my other switches require that. Any thought on that?

usually you need "login local" under all the vty lines in order to authenticate locally unless you use ACS server for authentication.
