AirWave Credentials for Logging in to Controllers

So apparently our AirWave servers log in to our Aruba controllers every few minutes, perhaps to query for data.  In any case, they log in as "admin."  Can this be configured to use a different username?  Ideally, I'd like to reserve "admin" as a failsafe credential in the "Management Users" repository and not have it regularly used.  I'd like to create some other logins, e.g., "AirWave1" and "AirWave2", in my Internal DB for use by my AirWave servers.  Is it possible to configure AirWave to use custom credentials when logging into the controllers?

Yes, just create local users on the controllers using the mgmt-user command.


Thanks,

1. I do not want to use mgmt-users, I want to use credentials from my "Internal DB"

2. More importantly, how would you configure AirWave to use a login name other than "admin" when it logs in to the controller?

Re: AirWave Credentials for Logging in to Controllers

The login AirWave uses is located on the device's manage page:

 

APs/Devices list -> select controller -> Manage page -> 'view credentials' to see current communication credentials.

You can change the ssh/telnet login and password to a different account that's not 'admin'.

 

You can do this in bulk from the device list by using modify devices and update credentials used to communicate with the device.
