How to Create A New user on the HP Procurve A Series Switch.

Before I show you how to create a new user on the HP Procurve switch/Router we need to decide what level of user we are going to create. Below you will see the 4 different levels of user.

 

Visitor 0 Basic commands such as telnet,ping and traceroute. This user cannot save the configuration of the switch
Monitor 1 These accounts are used for fault diagnosis,the user can use the display command but is still not allowed to save the configuration.
System 2 This user can run ost commands including route commands and is also allowed to save the configuration
Manager 3 Can run all commands and browse the file system of the switch

Now we know all the levels of user access, decide what access level your user will need. The command we use to create a user is called local-user/ Below we create a user called allen, who will be a manager.

local-user allen

We specify his password of letmein

 password simple letmein

We now specify what level of access this user needs, we decided on manager level which is 3.

authentication-attribute level 3

Your user is now created.

    Hi Allen,

    I am managing a 5130.
    It seems crazy, but how may I delete an user?
    I tried “undo” local-user with no success.

    undo local-user xxx ?
    class Specify a class for the local user
    What class is it? I mean… I can’t see class on the local-user details.

    Regards,
