Adding a User (adduser)

Adding a User (adduser)


The adduser command is used to add a user.


ipmcset [-t user] -d adduser -v <username>


Parameter Description Value
username Specifies the user to be added.

A string of up to 16 characters meeting the following requirements

  • Allow digits, letters, special characters.
  • Avoid the following special characters:


  • Avoid number sign (#) at the beginning.

Usage Guidelines

Only administrators can add users, and the administrator's password is required.

A maximum of 15 users can be added. The default permission of a newly added user is No Access, which supports access to all login interfaces.

A password must be set for the newly added user. 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 contain 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 the G560.

    • The default password Admin@9000 of the G530 V5 and G560 V5 nodes is in the weak password dictionary.
