Hi Metha,
Please could you explain the difference BTW the Max privilege and the default privilege.?

Also, I can seee that command set is enough, so can we only configure the command set only and will be enough OR we should configure the shell profile also.


Default privilege is the privilege user get immediately after a successful login. Max privilege determines the highest privilege level a user can elevate themselves using 'enable command.

Shell privilege determines what commands are available for the user. Without setting Shell privilege, the user will be dropped into priv 1 and will not have the whole lot of command available which make command auth somewhat irrelevant. Only after user gets to, usually, priv 15 where all commands are available, command auth can further be used to make only certain group of command usable for users. 

To answer your question, technically you do not need to set Shell Profile and just use command auth as long as it gives the result you need.
