ASA 5500 series enable password

I have enable password configured but when I ssh to it, at the password prompt, I can just press enter and access the ASA without the password. How do I fix this? Thanks

I did not configure the ASA. But I see from the config that it has everything, except "crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024".
NetExpert Network Solutions Pte LtdTechnical SpecialistCommented:
crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024 - mandatory command for SSH.

I believe, you have not set the enable password properly. can you re-apply the "enable password password" command agian

The ASA has an old 8.2 code. So I am just wondering if there is a bug or something. Thanks

Might be.  You can upgrade the ASA image and try that too.

have you re-applied the command and tested  ?
