3 questions about local user accounts

This was originally posted on APC forums on 12/3/2013


I have three questions about local user accounts:

1) It appears on older NMC1 devices with v3.74 FW there is only one admin account, by default called "apc". This account can be renamed and the password changed. However on NMC2 devices with v6.0.6 FW there is a default "apc" account but it is marked as a "Super User" and it can't be either deleted or renamed. The only thing you can do is change the password. Is this correct? I'd prefer to rename the default apc admin user instead if possible.

2) On the NMC2 what is the difference in rights between the Super-User apc account and Administrator accounts that you can create?

3) On the NMC2 what does the "Serial Remote Authentication Override" option do for a user?

Thanks,

Daniel.

Hi Daniel,

1. The Super User has full control of the NMC and cannot be renamed, locked or deleted. However it can be disabled.

2. The administrator and super user account has full control of the NMC. A super user account cannot be locked. An administrator account user can be deleted.

3. The serial remote authentication override allows the user to bypass RADIUS through the serial console connection only.

Regards,

B
