any idea?

Beginner

When you type password 7

When you type password 7 blahblahblah .the password following 7 should be encrypted.

So you must mention something like

username user privilege 15 password 7 ahme!mdsoirrncygh

Now there is a trick to find the encrypted password corresponding the cleartext you are finding.

First enter the normal password  using username user privilge 15 password 0 <normal-password>

Then enable service password encryption.When you will view the running-config after enabling this,you will be seeing an encrypted password.

Finally delete existing user and create username again with the encrypted password.

Let me know if you face any issues!

The highest privilege level

The highest privilege level is 15.The user having access to privilege level 2, would be able to access commands that are at privilege level 2 or below. The user at privilege level 15 would have access to everything.

So you may want to you the following command

username user privilege 15 password 7 password
