The web user level of an S series switch

19

The web user levels for S series switches (S1700 excluded):

By default, the level of the local user admin is 0, indicating a monitored user.

Only users at level 3 or a higher level have the management rights, called management users. Users at a level lower than level 3 are monitored users. A management user can perform any operations on the web page while a monitored user can only perform ping and tracert operations.

When a monitored user logs in to the web system, he will receive a web message indicating the current user level and the level upgrade method. The method is as follows:

The current user level is monitoring. For device configurations, refer to the following procedures to upgrade rights:

1. Log in to the device using command lines.

2. Enter the system view and the AAA view in sequence to change the user rights.

Run the local-user user-name privilege level level command to change the user rights.

Why level-1 users can run configuration-level commands on S series switches
Level-1 users can use only the commands at level 1 and level 0, but cannot use the level-2 (configuration-level) commands. You can use the following three methods to set the user level for users logging in through AAA local authentication. The user level set in the first method has the highest priority, and the user level set in the last method has the lowest priority. Run the local-user user-name privilege level level command in the AAA view to set the user level for the user named user-name. Run the admin-user privilege level level command in the service scheme view to set a user level for all users in a domain. Run the user privilege level level command in the user view to set a user level for all users logging in through the user view. By default, the users on the console port are at level 15 and the users on the VTY user interface are at level 0. Therefore, user level 1 set in the user view does not take effect because a higher user level has been set in the AAA or service scheme view.

Whether the level of the local user of the S series switches affects data communication
S series switches (except S1700) configuring the local user level only affects the local user's login management of the device, and has no effect on data communication.

How do I configure the web user level

Run the local-user user-name privilege level level command in the AAA view to set the web user level.

  • If the user level is 1, the user is a common administrator and can only access Device Information and change the password in User Management.
  • If the user level is 2, the user is an enterprise administrator and has most operating rights in the web system.
  • If the user level is 3 to 15, the user is a super administrator and has all operating rights in the web system.
You are advised to set level to 3 or higher.

What is the default user level on CE series switches
User levels determine operation permission of users. For CE series switches, there are 16 user levels that range from level 0 to 15. A larger value indicates a higher level. By default, the level of a user logging in to a switch through the console port is 15, and the level of a Telnet/Stelnet user is 0.
