no

asign only one manager password and one user password

for multiple user or manager password you must use ProCurve Manager

Re: Multiple manager and operator passwords

not on the switch...

you can have only one manager level user/pw and 1 operator level user/pw...

to have multiple logins, use external authentication requiring either a radius server or tacacs server...

benefit of using radius, can control which uid/pw gets either manager or operator access, and you can even further control what commands can be executed in the switch thru radius (meaning, even tho manager user level, can have less than normal manager commands available)...and thru radius accounting, can track when they logged in/out and what commands were typed into the switch...

hth...jeff
