[Cisco FAQ] - Password for DHCT code change?

Am I still required to call in and get the “Password of the Day” when I change code on a DHCT?

Am I still required to call in and get the “Password of the Da

No.  Originally, there was the potential for incorrect software to be loaded to a DHCT since software was not checked by the GUI when making changes. As such, the DHCT GUIs were enhanced to require a password when making any code changes. Now, there are newer checks on the DNCS that no longer require the system to be configured to need the Password of the Day.

You can disable the Password of the Day check as follows:

•1)      From an xterm window, edit the .profile:

$cd /export/home/dncs

$vi .profile

Note: The .profile controls unique settings for your system defining variables for how different processes should function. An understanding of “vi” is required to complete these steps.  

•2)      Add a new line to the .profile:

export DODSP=y

•3)      Save the .profile

:wq!

•4)      Close all current xterm windows to the DNCS

•5)      Open a new window to the DNCS which will read the new .profile

•6)      Verify the “DHCT” GUIs no longer requires a password when changing software
