Maximum number of username for local access

Hi,

I know that we can create different name for manager/operator access for ArubaOS16.05. But the guide didn't specify the maximum number of username that can be created? Is there a hard limit?

 

Thanks.

Re: Maximum number of username for local access

I believe it's only 2.  Manager and Operator.  You can change the name of these two accounts, but I believe that is all you have for local access.

Re: Maximum number of username for local access

Greetings!

 

There are two methods of creating local usernames and passwords on the ArubaOS-Switch platform.

 

The first is the 'password <manager | operator>' command, which (as noted) is limited to two accounts, which can be renamed.

 

The second is to use the 'aaa authentication local-user' command, which utilizes role-based access control (RBAC) to assign users to specific, customizable groups with different levels of management access.  We are checking with the engineering team to find out the maximum number of users this feature supports, but tests in our lab show that we support more than 64 local users.

Re: Maximum number of username for local access

After checking with engineering, the number we got back was 102 local users being the limit — the default 'manager' and 'operator' accounts, plus 100 role-based access control (RBAC) local users. (Note that the latter can be distributed amongst any number of predefined or custom user roles on the switch, up to a total of 100 accounts.)
