    Creating an IPMI User Account (SRC CLI)

    An IPMI username and password are required to connect to a remote IPMI interface. You can define new IPMI user accounts using the CLI.

    To create an IPMI user account using the SRC CLI:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures an IPMI interface.
      user@host# edit system ipmi
    2. Set a plain-text password that is autoencrypted by the CLI.
      [edit system ipmi]user@host# set user name plain-text-password

      For example:

      user@host#set user johndoe plain-text passwordNew password: xyz123 (text will not appear)Re-type new password: xyz123 (text will not appear)
    3. Verify the configuration.
      [edit system ipmi]admin@gnome# showaddress;gateway;
      user admin {encrypted-password ********;}
      user jdoe {encrypted-password ********;}
