Encrypted passwords can be copied and pasted. The pasted password is still the original password.
For example, a Telnet user named test and its password test are set on the device A.
[Quidway]local-user test
New local user added.
[Quidway-luser-test]password cipher test
[Quidway-luser-test]service-type telnet
The configuration is as follows:
local-user test
password cipher =W6JJ`N_LBKQ=^Q`MAF4<1!!
service-type telnet
The configuration on device A is copied and then pasted to device B. Then, the user named test can log in to device B by using the password test.
