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.
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.
