Commands to configure the global MAC authentication password

To configure the global MAC authentication password:


[no] aaa port-access mac-based password <password-value>

Specifies the global password to be used by all MAC authenticating devices.

The [no] form of the command disables the feature.

When the switch is in enhanced secure mode, commands that take a password as a parameter have the echo of the password typing replaced with asterisks. The input for the password is prompted for interactively. See Secure mode(FIPS).
