Hi team,

 

Is there any way to delete “rwa” default user or at least changes its name from VSP rel 8.X?

 

Regards,

You can do something like below:

 

VSP-4450GSX-PWR+:1(config)#username admin level rwa

Do you want to change username for the default RWA user ?  (y/n) ?

Hi EF, I believe you can change it with the command specified in this article: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?n=000049378&q=delete%20%E2%80%9Crwa%E2%80%9D%20default%20user%20VSP%20rel%208.X

EF,

When running those kind of tasks, don’t forget to also clean the snmpv2 default communities and snmpv3 default user/group (called initial) with:
no snmp-server community-by-index first
no snmp-server community-by-index firstvrf512
no snmp-server community-by-index second
no snmp-server community-by-index secondvrf512
no snmp-server group initial
no snmp-server user initial

They can also be used as backdoors.

 

Same applies for the web user.

The original question has already been answered by Dilraj, but this post provides additional information about users. Starting with VOSS 7.0, we introduced the ability to support more than one user with the same privilege level. 

There are 3 default cli users - ro, rw and rwa and you can have 7 additional users that can have ro or rw or rwa privilege level. 

Command to create a new user: username add {user_name} level {ro|rw|rwa} enable

Example: (config)#username add user5 level rw enable 

Enter password : *******

Re-enter password : *******

The additional users can be disabled (excluding rwa users) or deleted. User name can be changed only for default users. For the configured users, the user name is specified at creation time and it cannot be changed later.
