Problem setting password through a configuration file

Hello,

 

We've recently begun our deep-dive into IMC and we're having trouble setting the password for Manager/Operator through a configuration file. I don't think we're using the right syntax.

 

Is it generally adviced to set the password through a CLI-script after the deployment of our config-baseline for new swtiches? (HP2530-series) Or can we do it right in the config file?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Problem setting password through a configuration file

Hi David,

 

The security credentials for switches are not stored in the configuration file by default - they are stored elsewhere in the switch and are therefore able to be erased using the recessed 'clear' button on the front panel.

 

You can use the include-credentials command to save passwords, secret keys, and other security credentials in the running config file. For more information, see the section on 'Saving security credentials in a config file' in the Access Security Guide for the switch.

I hope this helps!
