I'm needing some help understanding the configuration of privilege levels under the vty lines.
When I log into the router with the following config, I am placed into priv level 1 (not 12, which is configured under the vty lines). From testing I've done, I know that if you don't specifically set the priv level of a user in the local database, it defaults to priv level 1.
From other testing I did (on real equipment), I've determined that the priv level associated with a username always overrides the priv level configured under the vty lines. So, my question is, when would the privilege level x command under the vty lines ever be used)???
no aaa new-model
username buck password 0 rogers
line vty 0 4
privilege level 12
