How to Configure Enable password on CISCO Switch

We use enable password when we move from user EXEC mode to Privileged mode. The privileged EXEC mode allows full access to a Cisco switchrouter. This mode gives the opportunity to view as well as change the configuration. Enable password gets stored in a plain text in the configuration file unless you encrypt it.

Switch#configure terminal
Switch(config)#enable password P@$$ew0rd

To See the configuration we did

Router2#show running-config

hostname Switch
enable password P@$$ew0rd
interface FastEthernet0/1
