Configuring User Access (NSM Procedure)

This section includes the following topics:

Configuring Login Classes

You can define any number of login classes and then apply one login class to an individual user account. All users who can log in to the router must be in a login class. With login classes, you define the following:

To configure login classes:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab and then double-click the device for which you want to configure a login class.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select System > Login > Class.
  4. Add or modify login class settings as specified in Table 7.
  5. Click one:
    • New—Adds a new login class.
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.

Configuring User Accounts

User accounts provide one way for users to access the device. (Users can access the router without accounts if you configured RADIUS or TACACS+ servers.) For each account, define the login name for the user and, optionally, information that identifies the user. After you have created an account, a home directory is created for the user.

To configure user accounts:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. Click the Device Tree tab and then double-click the device for which you want to configure login class.
  3. Click the Configuration tab. In the configuration tree, select System > Login > User.
  4. Add or modify login class settings as specified in Table 8.
  5. Click one:
    • New—Adds a new user account.
    • OK—Saves the changes.
    • Cancel—Cancels the modifications.
