MGMT-USER - Max of 10???

Just ran into an issue while trying to create new guest-provisioning accounts. It appears that there's a max of 10 mgmt-user accounts that you can put on a controller.

The User Guide does NOT point that out, however, the CLI guide does.

Does anyone at Aruba know the answer as to why that exists, and if there are any workarounds we can do to get past that?

Anyone else have an issue with a max of 10?

Re: MGMT-USER - Max of 10???

I'm not sure why it's a system limit, probably it just seemed like a reasonable number to manage on the box. You can go to using RADIUS to authenticate the management users to the system, which is probably what was expected if you needed more than 10 users. This is detailed in the user guide, and is probably your best bet.

I'll let tech pubs know about the user guide missing the 10 user limit.

Thanks a bunch, Andy! We have it working via RADIUS now.

Glad it's working for you Patrick. To follow up, tech pubs is aware of the needed change and will be making sure it goes into the user guide. Thanks for the catch.

Of course, you are already doing radius authentication, but the workaround is to authenticate users via the local user database. That has a 4000 user limit.
