ASA - how to show ike pre-shared key - PSK recovery

Once we had a pre-shared key configured, we are not able to see them directly applying show running command, as the key is encrypted. The output displayed it as *******.


kis-asa-5515X# sh running-config | include shared
 ikev1 pre-shared-key *****
 ikev1 pre-shared-key *****


Solution 1

Use more command,

more system:running-config


kis-asa-5515X# more system:running-config | in shared
 ikev1 pre-shared-key SEE_YOUR_PASS
 ikev1 pre-shared-key SEE_YOUR_PASS
