Cisco Login Disable/Enable


Overview

Not all control systems can navigate a username/password prompt. For those that can't, we can disable the switch login to go straight to the interface.

If you are using a Driver from Just Add Power, the switch must have login enabled.

These instructions work for all supported Cisco switches.


Disable Login

These steps must be performed via the command-line interface of the switch. Send these commands followed by a carriage-return:

config
aaa authentication enable default none
aaa authentication login default none
end
copy run start

Confirm the last command with a 'y' and log out of the switch. The next login will go to User EXEC prompt > automatically.


Re-enable Login

To enable the login prompt (setting the switch to default login state) you can reset the switch to default or send these commands followed by a carriage-return:

config
aaa authentication enable default local enable
aaa authentication login default local
end
copy run start

Confirm the last command with a 'y' and log out of the switch. The next login will ask for a username/password and then go straight to the Privileged EXEC prompt #.
