Setting the SNMPv3 User Encryption Password (snmpprivacypassword)

Setting the SNMPv3 User Encryption Password (snmpprivacypassword)


The snmpprivacypassword command is used to set the data encryption password for a user who uses SNMPv3 to connect to the iBMC.


ipmcset -t user -d snmpprivacypassword -v username


Parameter Description Value
username Indicates the existed user whose password is to be changed. -

Usage Guidelines

This command is available only for V5 servers.

Administrators can change the password of any user. Operators and common users can only change their own passwords. The password of the current user is required.

The password setting rules vary depending on whether password complexity check and weak password check are enabled. To check whether password complexity check is enabled, run the passwordcomplexity command. To check whether weak password check is enabled, run the weakpwddic command.

  • If password complexity check is disabled, the password cannot be empty or exceed 20 characters.
  • If password complexity check is enabled, the password must meet the following requirements:

    • Contain 8 to 20 characters
    • Contain at least a space or one of the following special characters:


    • Contain at least two types of the following characters:

      • Uppercase letters A to Z
      • Lowercase letters a to z
      • Digits 0 to 9
    • Cannot be the same as the user name or the user name in reverse order.
    • Have at least two new characters when compared with the previous password.
  • If weak password check is enabled, the password cannot be the same as the passwords contained in the weak password dictionary. (You can run the ipmcset -t user -d weakpwddic -v export command to export the weak passwords from the weak password dictionary.)
    • Weak password check is not supported by V3 servers.

    • The default password Admin@9000 of the V5 servers is in the weak password dictionary.
