I gets connected just fine then drops to the unprivileged account. 

I have tried to add a specific username and password for this device like this:

#add user kansascityASA5520* {user}
#add password kansascityASA5520* {password} {password}

-----My reply----
Be sure that the username and password are defined before the "global" username and password.  Also, make sure the passwords are the same.  Is autoenable turned on?  If so, turn it off for that device.  Lastly, what is the * used for in the example above?  I am not sure that is a permissible character in the hostname field.
