Changing the User Password (password)

Changing the User Password (password)


The password command is used to change the user password.


ipmcset [-t user] -d password -v username


Parameter Description Value
username Specifies the user whose password needs to be changed. -

Usage Guidelines

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 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.
