ASA ssh login privilege level not set correctly

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Tilman Schmidt, Dec 4, 2008.

  1. When I log in via ssh to an ASA configured with

    aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL
    aaa authorization command LOCAL
    username user password pass privilege 15

    I don't get privilege level 15 as I should. I have to execute the
    "login" command explicitly (giving the same username and password I
    already used for the ssh connection). Then the prompt changes and
    privileged commands work.

    On IOS routers this works as expected, ie. the ssh login directly
    gives me a privileged prompt.

    Am I doing something wrong? Is that a known bug/feature?
