Enable manager logon for HP switches

Overview

When entering the enable mode, NCM only allows users to enter a password and not a username required in some HP switches, such as the ProCurve. 

Environment

  • NCM all versions

Resolution

 Use one of the following workarounds to setup the manager user for enable mode:

  • Setup a Connection Profile in NCM with the user as "manager", and fill in the manager password. Then, use this profile for your HP switches.
  • Change the "manager" username on your HP Switches to a user you are using in NCM Connection Profiles. To change the "manager" username, contact your device vendor for detailed steps.

 

Example commands:

Switch(config)# password manager
Switch(config)# password manager user-name myNCMadmin
