local-user password

local-user password


The local-user password command configures a password for a local account.

By default, the password of a local account is empty.


local-user user-name password

This command is an interactive command. After you enter local-user user-name password and press Enter, you can set the password as prompted. The local user password is a string of 8~128 case-sensitive characters.


Parameter Description Value

Specifies the local user name.

The value is a string of 1 to 64 characters. It cannot contain spaces, asterisk, double quotation mark and question mark.

During local authentication or authorization, run the authentication-mode { local | local-case } or authorization-mode { local | local-case } command to configure case sensitivity for user names. If the parameter is set to local, user names are case-insensitive. If the parameter is set to local-case, user names are case-sensitive.

Note the following when configuring case sensitivity for user names:

  • Only the user name is case-sensitive and the domain name is case-insensitive.
  • For user security purposes, you cannot configure multiple local users with the user names that differ only in uppercase or lowercase. For example, after configuring ABC, you cannot configure Abc or abc as the user name.
  • When a device is upgraded from V200R008C10 or an earlier version to a version later than V200R008C10, all local user names in the original configuration file are saved in lowercase. When a configuration file that is manually configured or generated using the third-party tool is used for configuration restoration, local user names that differ only in uppercase or lowercase are considered as one user name and the first one among these local user names is used.

Usage Guidelines

If no password is configured when a local user is created, the password is empty, and the local user cannot log in to the device.

A simple local user password may bring security risks. The user password must consist of two types of characters, including uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numerals, and special characters. In addition, the password cannot be the same as the user name or user name in a reverse order.
