Configure auto generated guest passwords

Hi there,


we are using ArubaOS 8.3 with the integrated Guest Manager system. I was wondering if there is any way to configure how the auto gererated passwords for guests are composed. For example: I would like to use only lower or upper case letters.

When searching for this, i only found a solution for ArubaOS 6.5 here:



Is it still possible to define 'password format' and 'password complexity' in ArubaOS8 or is there an other way to archive this?



Re: Configure auto generated guest passwords

Those options you have provided in the link are for ClearPass not ArubaOS. You would need Clearpass to achieve something like this. You can use the following via the CLI to generate accounts on a manual basis.


(host) [mynode] #local-userdb add {generate-username|username <name>}{
generate-password|password <password>}

If my post addresses your query, give kudos:)
