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.
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.
Thank you! Problem has solved!
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) >enablePassword: enable (aruba) #configure terminalEnter 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) >exitUser: adminPassword: (aruba) >enablePassword: enable (aruba) #configure terminalEnter 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 :)
