Managing Password Policy Restrictions for Local Users

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.

Oracle ILOM automatically enforces all configured password policy restrictions whenever local user account passwords are changed or created.

For further details about modifying the default password policy restrictions provided, see the following sections:
