Description (partial)

"aaa authentication enable console LOCAL" only asks on the first concurrent session for username and password, for all subsequent session it asks for password and even if you type the right password it does not work. I will ask again until exit or disable of a privileged session to go back to only ask in the first one.

"aaa authentication enable console LOCAL" set in the ASA, if there are some aa commands set as well for tacacs or radius then then second and any further concurrent session will ask for password and fail even with the right one. If all aaa commands are set to LOCAL the local password will be accepted.
