Requirement:

We need to password protect the console af an Aruba AP.

 

 



Solution:

We can configure shell password in AP system profile to secure the AP console.

 

 



Configuration:

(master) (config) #ap system-profile default
(master) (AP system profile "default") #shell-passwd aruba123
(master) (AP system profile "default") #

 


Verification

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 6.4.4.0 and above the password is enabled by default.
