Unity Express VMail passwords

Answered Question

User Badges:

Is it possible to configure Unity express to not require passwords. I know that when you first set up users, you can give a blank password initially. but when the user enrols, it makes you set a password. Is there a way to set the system so that it is not compulsory for users to set a password when they enrol.

Hi David,


This is not possible my friend.


User Interfaces/Passwords


Cisco Unity Express R1 has three separate user interfaces: a GUI, CLI and TUI (subscriber telephony interface). There are two types of users: administrators and end users (subscribers). Administrators can have access to the GUI and the CLI; subscribers can have access to the GUI and TUI.


The GUI and CLI login protections are referred to as a "password", while TUI login protection is referred to as a "PIN".


GUI

All User IDs defined on the system are password controlled on login, regardless of whether the User ID has administrator or subscribers privileges. Passwords are **mandatory and are 3 to 32 characters long, case sensitive, and allow alphabetic and numeric characters.


TUI

All mailboxes defined on the system are PIN controlled on login. PINs are **mandatory, are 3 to 19 characters long, and allow numeric characters.


From this good CUE Security doc;


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/netsol/ns340/ns394/ns165/ns391/networking_solutions_design_guidance09186a00801f8e31.html#wp41238


When the password is left blank in the initial config, CUE marks it as expired and forces the user to set one.


Hope this helps!
