Cannot configure super password on AR200

Publication Date:  2014-08-29 Views:  267 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
When i run the super password command the device outputs an erorr message specifing that this command is not supported.
Alarm Information
Unknown command syntax.
Handling Process
To configure a similar security system i needed to configure multiple AAA users with different privilege levels and each time i need to switch from a monitoring user to configuration level rights i need to logout and login with a higher privilege level user.
Root Cause
After consulting the device documentation and discussing with Huawei technical staff i was able to find out that the Super Password feature has been removed from the latest software versions as it is considered a security risk (single point of vulnerability). This is because if an unauthorized person obtains the super password by any means he can have full access to device configuration without any restriction.
Suggestions
none
