Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

To improve password security, the administrator can use this command to set the validity period for local user's password. When the validity period expires, the password becomes invalid.

If the local user still uses this password to log in to the device, the device allows the user to log in, prompts the user that the password has expired, and asks the user whether to change the password:
  • If the user selects Y to change the password, the user needs to enter the old password, new password, and confirm password. The password can be successfully changed only when the old password is correct and the new password and confirm password are the same and meet requirements (password length and complexity). After the password is changed, the user can log in to the device successfully.
  • If the user selects N or fails to change the password, the user cannot log in.


Changing the system time will affect the password validity status.

After this command is executed, the device checks whether the password expires every one minute; therefore, there may be a time difference within one minute.


# Set the password validity period to 120 days.
