Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If you are a low-level administrator, to ensure security of the password, you can run the local-user change-password command in the user view to change your password after passing the authentication.


  • To modify the password, a local user must enter the old password.
  • After the user that passes local authentication changes the password, the user must type the new password to pass local authentication.
  • The local-user change-password command is used to change the password of a local user. It does not save the configuration, but the result of changing the password is saved through the local-user password command. If the server does not receive old password, new password, or confirmed password from the user within 30 seconds, it terminates the password change process. When the user presses Ctrl+C to cancel password change, the password change process is terminated.
  • A simple password of a local user may bring security risks. When a local user changes the password, the new password must be a string of 8 to 128 characters and must contain at least two types of the following: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, digits, and special characters. In addition, the new password cannot be the same as the user name or the user name in a reverse order.
  • For device security purposes, change the password periodically.
