Commands to configure the global MAC authentication password

To configure the global MAC authentication password:


aaa port-access mac-based password <password-value>
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).
