Password Policies in WLC and Local Password Policy in WCS question

I have a question about the "Password Policy" in the WLC's and the "Local Password Policy" in WCS. Is it only valid for the local management users and AP's or should it also be valid for the Local Net Users/Guest Users (hence the word local)?

If the Password Policies are enabled, I can create Local Net Users with username "test" and password "test". The password policy doesn't kickin, so it looks like the policy is only valid for the local management user?

The documentation doesn't mention were the "Password Policies" are applied to. Do you have experience with this?

Well when I have tested it, it was only for management.

Password Policies in WLC and Local Password Policy in WCS questi

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your answer, but I also tested it and did see the same results you did. But is this "as designed" or should the password policy also be applied to the local net users? It is not clear for me when I read the documentation.

When I configure the Password Policies directly in the controller, it states: "Password Policies - Local Management User and AP".

best regards, john

That's how it's been since that feature was introduced. I will have to look at it again, but I think there is a minimum password length.

Thanks,

I have checked in my wlc, Policy is working fine as per detail given below.

Foot Notes
1 Password must contain characters from at least three of the classes : upper case letters , lower case letters, digits, and special characters.

2 Password cannot be "cisco", "ocsic", "admin", "nimda" or any variant obtained by changing the capitalization of letters, or by substituting "1" "|" or "!" for i, or substituting "0" for "o", or substituting "$" for "s".
