Important operating notes

  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that when executing an encrypted-<option> command, you copy and paste the encrypted parameter from a known encrypted password that has been generated on the same switch or another switch with the same pre-shared key (whether user-specified or a default key). If an incorrectly encrypted parameter is used, it is highly likely that the decrypted version will contain incorrect characters, and neither key will function correctly or be displayed in any show command.
