Configuring a User Account
This sample procedure describes how to use the CLI to view system status and to perform a simple configuration change. You configure a new user account, one for your own use or a test account.
To configure a user account on the system:
Log in as user with superuser privileges, start the CLI, and enter configuration mode.user@host> configureuser@host#
The prompt in brackets (), also known as a banner, shows that you are in configuration edit mode, at the top of the hierarchy.
Move to the [edit system login] level of the configuration hierarchy.user@host# edit system login[edit system login]user@host#
The prompt in brackets changes to [edit system login] to show you are at a new level in the hierarchy.
Add a new user account.[edit system login]user@host# edit user nchen
This example adds an account nchen (for Nathan Chen), but you can use any account name.
Configure a full name for the account. If the name includes spaces, enclose the entire name in quotation marks (" ").[edit system login user nchen]user@host# set full-name "Nathan Chen"
Configure an account class. The account class sets the user access privileges for the account.[edit system login user nchen]user@host# set class super-user
Configure an authentication method and password for the account.[edit system login user nchen]user@host# set authentication plain-text-passwordNew password:Retype new password:
When the new password prompt appears, enter a clear-text password that the system will encrypt, and then confirm the new password.
Commit the configuration.[edit system login user nchen]user@host# commitcommit complete
Configuration changes are not activated until you commit the configuration. If the commit is successful, a commit complete message appears.
Return to the top level of the configuration, and then exit.[edit system login user nchen]user@host# topuser@host# exitExiting configuration mode
Log out of the SRC software.user@host> exit[user@host]#
To test your changes, log back in with the user account and password that you just configured.--- SRC CLI 7.0 build CLI.A.7.0.0.0171(c) 2005-2006 Juniper Networks Inc.nchen@host>
When you log in, the new username appears at the command prompt.
