How do I configure the super password on an AR

Users are assigned one of the 16 levels, which correspond to command levels. After logging in to an AR, users can use only the commands whose levels are equal to or lower than their levels. The method for configuring the super password on an AR is as follows:
1. For versions earlier than V200R005C00: Users at a lower level can run the super [level] command to switch to a higher level. For security reasons, when a user is switched from a lower level to a higher level, the AR prompts the user to change the password for authentication. You can run the super password [level user-level] [cipher password] command in the system view to configure this password. For example:
[HUAWEI] super password level 3 cipher Helloworld@6789
2. For V200R006C13 and later versions:
Users at a lower level can run the super [level] command to switch to a higher level. For security reasons, when a user is switched from a lower level to a higher level, the AR prompts the user to change the password for authentication. You can run the super password [level user-level] cipher command in the system view to configure this password in interactive mode.
