Which of the following commands sets the secret password to Cisco?

[A]. enable secret password Cisco
[B]. enable secret cisco
[C]. enable secret Cisco
[D]. enable password Cisco

Answer: Option C


The enable secret password is case sensitive, so the second option is wrong. To set the enable secret <password>, use the enable secret <password> command from global configuration mode.

B & c both are same why? So both are correct.

Cisco passwords are case sensitive. Details should not be left out.

In the command we don't use the word cisco then there is no difference between option B and C.

Option B is not an answer because password "cisco" letter c = is in small letter. In the case of case sensitive, this answer is not in global mode.

The correct command is ""enable secret password PASSWORD"". In this, PASSWORD is the password for the privileage mode.

Is there any rule for Cisco to follow case sensitive?

Where we are actually using this? Is it in cisco packet tracer?
