We need to password protect the console af an Aruba AP.
We can configure shell password in AP system profile to secure the AP console.
(master) (config) #ap system-profile default (master) (AP system profile "default") #shell-passwd aruba123 (master) (AP system profile "default") #
When we try to access the console port of the AP, we will get a password prompt.
password: input passwd is not correct!
When we enter the correct password, we get console access:
password: ~ #
NOTE: In ArubaOS 126.96.36.199 and above the password is enabled by default.
