5130 EI SSH access

Good morning All u

I have been follwoing the guide here:

For setting up SSH: 

Firstly i should mention the switch is connected to the network (has ip) vlans correctly tagged etc and end users are fine. 

The issue is i get from logs are:

F5ES01 SSHS/6/SSHS_AUTH_PWD_FAIL: Authentication failed for user admin from port 56820 because of invalid username or wrong password.

This is my configuration i believe i has configured a local user correctly following guide above but wondered if someone with more knowledge at HP could assist to see if they can pinpoint where i have obviously gone wrong.

authorization-attribute user-role network-operator

I believe it might be to do with the roles being added and or the domain system configured. I did try to "undo" but the switch states you cannot remove the domain system.

I should advise i am just trying to setup a simple SSH password authentication not 


Any assistance anyone could provide would be much apprciated 


Kind regards

Try should give that user the role network-admin.

And i don't know how you configured your password, but you should configure it like this:

password simple <your password>

It will hash it automatically after.




Re: 5130 EI SSH access


You did not include service-type in the local-user settings.  You need to add at least ssh as a supported protocol.

I would set the ssh user to be service-type ssh and not stelnet.

Lastly, if you expect to be able to manage the switch as user admin, you also need to add the user-role of network-administrator to it.

If other people need access to the switch to monitor it, for example, you can create separate accounts for them with the appropriate permission level.  You would have to ass the ssh user command for each additional account.

The other thing to check, as HP-Browniee said, is to reset the password using password simple to ensure that the password is correct.
