Hello!


By default, five historical passwords are recorded for each user. If the new password is the same as a stored password, the device displays an error message to prompt the user that password change fails.


You can use the password history record number 0 command to disable the function.


However, to improve password security, it is not recommended that you use a previously used password.
Any further questions, let us know.

even resetting the switch, it does not let you use the same password that was configured before the reset, would there be any way to circumvent this?
