Create local user sw 2930F

I need to create several local users in a sw 2930F, by default the swicth only allows me the manager and the operator. How can I create multiple users?

You can use "role based access control", which let's you create up to 64 different admin roles. Check chapter 15 of the "Access Security guide" (attached).

Good afternoon,

Thank you very much for your answer, it is true that for this to work it is necessary to have clearpass?


I hope to receive your comments.


Greetings and blessings.

ClearPass is not required to create a local user on the switch.  You can use a command similar to the following to create a local switch user assigned a predefined role (roles are listed in the user guide linked above):


ArubaSwitch(config)# aaa authentication local-user localadmin group Level-15 password plaintext 
New password for localadmin: ********
Please retype new password for localadmin: ********
