Creating Users on a Cisco Router

Having user accounts on a router makes life and logging much easier. We can assign different privilige levels to different users to restrict access to certain commands. You may want a junior admin to see a few things to help you troubleshoot but you don’t want him to be able to change anything. In the following example we are going to add 2 local user accounts, one with the default privilege level (0) and one with full privilege level (15).
