I'm trying to update the enable secret and account password on a Cisco3560-CG switch with an encrypted password shared by devices throughout the company. I use the following command for the enable secret and get the following output.
enable secret 5 <encrypted password> ERROR: The secret you entered is not a valid encrypted secret. To enter an UNENCRYPTED secret, do not specify type 5 encryption. When you properly enter an UNENCRYPTED secret, it will be encrypted.
We've used this encrypted password successfully on many other devices so I know it's a valid encrypted secret, but we haven't used it on any other 3560-CG's.
We've tried updating to the latest OS (15.2.2E6) and rolling back to 15.0.2 and neither helps. I can add an enable secret in clear text, but that doesn't work for our organizational policy.
Has anyone else run into this issue on this or any other model of Cisco switch?
