ssh into HP 5406 and 5412

Hi,

I am in process of configuring a few of HP 5406 and 5412 chassis switches. What I need assistance on is figuring out how to configure ssh to get a two level authentication - similar to Cisco switches.

e.g.- ssh IP of switch.
1 st password

switch> enable
2nd password

Just wondering if this is possible on HP switches.

Thanks,

CP

Are you going to use local users on the switches or Radius authentication?

Hi,

Local for right now and move to radius later.

Procurve (now Aruba) switches have two user levels: manager and operator
You can configure these individually with these commands:

password manager user-name <name of admin user> plaintext xxxxxxx
password operator user-name <name of operator user> plaintext yyyyyyy

If you logon with the manager user then you will be in enable (full rights) mode where you can perform config changes etc.

If you logon with the operator user then you can only view config, status etc. Then you have to use the enable command and give in the manager password to elevate your privileges to manager.

Does this answer your question? When you later move to Radius you can assign different privilege levels (manager/operator) to different Radius users.
