In Cisco IOS, I would use the command "enable secret [LINE]" to set the the elevated priv password.

How is this done in NX-OS / on a Nexus 5k?

in nx-os, you have to enable "features" before you use them.

Maybe this can help.

Try a "show feature-set" or "show feature" and see if its enabled already

Things are done differently in NS-OS. Access is by "roles"

For privileged mode (on IOS platforms) access on an NX-OS platform for user "Home" with a password of "Simpson1", do the following:

username Homer password 5 Simpson1 role network-admin
