That was the error message when I tried to telnet into a newly configured switch in the lab. I had full access via the console port but couldn’t telnet into the switch. There was the standard enable secret xxxx line and a username admin secret xxxx line and nothing under the vty lines. It turns out that I forgot to set aaa new-model. Without that the vty lines expect a password to be defined just for them. Now that’s a rookie mistake!
