How to change the password to a history password on a CE series switch

By default, the security policy function is enabled for local accounts on CE series switches to ensure security. The new password cannot be the same as any of the last 10 history passwords.

If the password complexity check function is configured, the new password cannot be the same as any of the last 10 history passwords.

To use a history password, run the following commands:

<HUAWEI> system-view
[~HUAWEI] aaa
[~HUAWEI-aaa] undo local-user policy security-enhance //Disable the security policy function for local accounts.
 
[*HUAWEI-aaa] undo local-user policy password complexity-enhance //If the password complexity check function has been enabled, disable it.
                                          
[*HUAWEI-aaa] commit
