Set Password Policy Restrictions for All Local Users (3.2.5 and later)

Oracle ILOM, as of firmware release 3.2.5, enforces a password policy for all local user accounts. The password policy ships with a default set of password policy restrictions. System administrators can either choose to use the default properties as is or modify them to meet their password policy needs.

Note -  Modifications to the password policy properties should be set prior to creating local user accounts. In the event that the Password Policy properties are modified after configuring local user accounts, Oracle ILOM will automatically: 1) remove the configuration of all local user accounts, and 2) restore the default root account that was initially provided with the system.

Before You Begin

  • The Admin (a) role is required to configure the Password Policy properties.

  • The Password Policy applies only to local user accounts. It has no impact on remote user authentication service accounts like LDAP or Active Directory.

  • Upon saving changes to the password policy properties, the following will occur:

    • All local user account configurations are deleted from Oracle ILOM.

    • The default local user account (root) shipped with the system is restored.

    • On the initial log in of root, the root user is prompted to change the root-account password.

Use the following web-based instructions to set a Password Policy for all local users:
