Description (partial)


Customer using Nexus 7000 configured Level 5 password using below command:

username admin password 5 test role network-admin

Now he is unable to login to his switch. This is expected since the switch is assuming this to be an encrypted password ( since 5 is used). 

NXOS should ideally check the validity of a Level 5 password before it accepts it.
