Configure Administration User Accounts

Set the root administration user account password. You also need to set up one or more administration user accounts. These administration user accounts are used to log in to the router through the management console. To configure administration user accounts:

  1. Add a password to the root (superuser) administration user account.
    [edit]
    root# set system root-authentication plain-text-password
    New password: password
    Retype new password: password
  2. Create a management console user account.
    [edit]
    root# set system login user user-name authentication plain-text-password
    New Password: password
    Retype new password: password
  3. Set the user account class to super-user.
    [edit]
    root# set system login user user-name class super-user
