Q:

How to Disable Console Access on Controller in AOS:8.0?



A:

A new command is introduced to disable the console-login. The purpose of this command is to introduce an ability to lock down all console ports, for example, micro USB, mini USB on the managed device to enable high level security.

With this command, only console access over serial port, USB, and mini USB will be blocked. SSH/ telnet are still allowed.
Goto the specific node and execute this command.

In the CLI:


To disable the console:
(host) [MyNode] (config) #mgmt-user console-block
PLEASE SAVE THE CONFIGURATION. CONSOLE WILL BE BLOCKED ONCE USER LOGS OUT FROM SERIALCONSOLE.

 

To re-enable the console:
(host) [MyNode] (config) #no mgmt-user console-block
