Question:

A technician configured a switch with console, enable secret, and VTY passwords. The service password-encryption command was then used to encrypt all unencrypted passwords. What happens if the technician issues the no service password-encryption command?

  • Only the enable secret password will remain encrypted.
  • All passwords, including the enable secret password, will be shown in clear text.
  • The switch will issue an ‘Invalid Error’ message.
  • The passwords will still be encrypted.

Explanation: After the service password-encryption command was issued, there is no way to present the passwords again in clear text. The no service password-encryption command stops any new passwords from being encrypted.
