Can I allow local auth. from the CLI?

Hello!

We have a problem: our customer unchecked checkbox "Allow local authentication" on Admin page of controller. Becouse we lost admin access to controller.

Also our customer forgot "enable" password :smileymad: . But I have access to serial port of controller and (theoretically) "enable" password isn`t a problem for me.

But... Can I enable "Allow local authentication" logon method from the CLI??? What should I do for this?

 

P.s. I know one method - reset controller to factory defaults but it`s not right... Maybe.

 

Best regards.

I'm not sure but I guess you can use the password/forgetme procedure from the console: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/ArubaOS-and-Controllers/Resetting-enable-password/td-p/15093

If you are in with administrative privileges you can do pretty much everything.

Did the customer uncheck the "Local Authentication Mode" option at Configuartion/Administration? If so I guess "no mgmt-user localauth-disable" will do the job.

Hi,

:smileyhappy:

Good morning,

Here you go:

 

To restore the admin password on the controller, follow these steps:
Log in from the console.
Use "password" as the user name and use "forgetme!" as the password.
Enable the mode password as "enable".
In configuration mode, enter the ‘mgmt-user admin root’ command to reset the admin password.
Re-login using the new admin password.
In configuration mode, enter the ‘enable secret’ command to reset the enable mode password.

For example:



User: password
Password: forgetme!
(aruba) >enable
Password: enable
(aruba) #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z
(aruba) (config) #mgmt-user admin root
Password:
Re-Type password:
(aruba) (config) #exit
(aruba) #exit
(aruba) >exit

User: admin
Password:
(aruba) >enable
Password: enable
(aruba) #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z
(aruba) (config) #enable secret
Password:
Re-Type password:
(aruba) (config) #write memory

 

 

after you will do it - you will able to log into the controller with the new password/enable password and to enable the local auth.

 

have a gr8 day.

Thank you for answer.

I'm tried it - I'm restored an admin account and "enable" password, but I did not have an admin access from web-interface.

Solution have been described in post #2: it`s command "no mgmt-user localauth-disable"

 


Thanks a lot! Problem has solved!

P.s. I'm apologize for my bad english :)
