LMS 2.6: username minimum length

Answered Question
Jun 29th, 2007

It's not letting me create a local user with a name fewer than 5 chars.

Validation Error

Invalid username: It should be atleast 5 characters.

Is there any way around that? The ones inherited from LMS 2.2 are fine.

Can I manually stick it in cwpass?

Nice to know that method. In a pinch, I manually added a user to cwpass, which turned out alright for my purpose too, without having to restart any process.

Does the resetLoginModule.pl script erase the ACS server credentials currently stored?

Is there any way to adjust the timeout value of how long LMS waits for ACS?

I just noticed that when I toggled from TACACS+ (with debug OFF) to CiscoWorks Local, the latter setting got saved with debug ON by default. This was in the non-ACS mode.

Does each instance of SCP to/from a Cisco router/switch take up a VTY line? I'm seeing our MOTD in the list of Partially Successful Config Archive devices:

The resetLoginModule.pl script only disables the login module, it does not affect its configuration. The timeout for TACACS+ is hardcoded. Each SCP session does take up a VTY line.
