CCNA Exam Prep Question of the Week

You type the following commands on your switch:
(config)#enable secret sanfran
(config)#enable password cisco

Which statement is true?

  1. Either “sanfran” or “cisco” can be used to enter privileged mode.
  2. Only “cisco” can be used to enter privileged mode.
  3. You will get an error message because you are trying to configure two passwords that could be used to enter privileged mode.
  4. Only “sanfran” can be used to enter privileged mode.

 

The correct answer is 4.

Only “sanfran” can be used to enter privileged mode. Both commands configure a password that can be used to enter privileged mode, but only the password configured in the “enable secret” command is used if it is configured. The password configured in the “enable password” command is ignored unless the secret password is deleted.
