IPS Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus

Hi folks, I am facing an error when i try to create a account in IPS,, i.e

Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus : Failure setting the account's password: it is based upon your password entry

Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus : Failure setting the account's password: is too simple

So please i need your help in changing the password policy to set my password. Is there any policy so that we can alter other then service authentication, since i have already altered it and tried, But i still got this errors, is there any way to change the password policy in IPS ??

Regards,

Santosh Atnur

Re: IPS Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus

Hi Santosh,

The Error messages you see are expected due to the password choice and the  behavior cannot be altered.

1.  John123

     Did you try this by changing the size range value ( minimum default is 8 ) ? If you change it to 6/7, then you would see the following error "Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus : Failure setting the account's password: it is based on a dictionary word".

2. While setting Cisco123 - I beleive you see the following message because of another account with same password.

Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus : Failure setting the account's password: it is based upon your password entry

Thanks and Regards,

Gaurav.

IPS Error: setEnableAuthenticationTokenStatus

Login to CLI , then :

conf t > service authentication > password-strength

You can set your password policy.

From GUI:

Configuration> Sensor Management > Password.

Hope this helps.
