Can You View The VTP Password From User Mode?

Filed under: Cisco,IOS,Switching,VTP — cciepursuit @ 5:03 pm

As I touched on in this post, anyone in exec (privileged) mode can view the VTP password on a switch:

sw1#sh vtp pass
VTP Password: SECRET

But can you see that same password from user mode?  It turns out that you cannot:

First get into user mode:
sw1#disable

Now let’s try to look at the VTP password:
sw1>sh vtp pass
           ^
% Invalid input detected at ‘^’ marker.

Can’t see the password.  Here are your user mode options: 
sw1>sh vtp ?
  counters  VTP statistics
  status    VTP domain status
