Dear All,

I am trying to reset the password on WLC and getting error like "Cannot use username or its reverse as a password". Even i tried with the multiple unique UN & PW but still the same error. Any Clue..?

Basically, you need to enable strong username/password policy.  You can't use "Cisco/Cisco" as a username/password.  Nor can you use "Cisco/ocsiC".

You must first check if below checks are enabled in security--> AAA->password policy which is restricting you to keep the usename and password of your choice..??

Configuring Password Policies (GUI)


Step 1   Choose Security > AAA > Password Policies to open the Password Policies page.
Step 2   Select the Password must contain characters from at least 3 different classes  check box if you want your password to contain characters from at least  three of the following classes: lower case letters, upper case letters,  digits, and special characters.
Step 3   Select  the No character can be repeated more than 3 times consecutively check box if you do not want character in the new password to repeat more than three times consecutively.
Step 4   Select  the Password cannot be the default words like cisco, admin  check box if you do not want the password to contain words such as  Cisco, ocsic, admin, nimda, or any variant obtained by changing the  capitalization of letters or by substituting 1, |, or! or substituting 0  for o or substituting $ for s.
Step 5   Select  the Password cannot contain username or reverse of username check box if you do not want the password to contain a username or the reverse letters of a username.
Step 6   Click Apply to commit your changes.
Step 7   Click Save Configuration to save your changes.
