We just adquired a new router (cisco 2900 series) to replace another router (Router 1). In router 1 we have eigrp authentication with a key-string encrypted (i.e 7 15005b19107939) because the vendor router uses eigrp authentication. Router 1 is connected to this vendor router. My question is do i need to get the key-string word that they used in their router or can we  just generate our  own key-string when we setup the new router.

you need to match the key string for the peer router.

you can try using the following command and see if shows the current encrypted key

more system:running-config

if it doesnt you'll need to ask your peer or the current peer key or replace both sides with a new key
