You are advised to enable password strength check. If a configured password is simple and does not meet password strength requirements, it is prone to be attacked and cracked by unauthorized users, which affects device security.
The restriction on user names and passwords applies only to new users and does not affect existing ones.

VRP5:
If password authentication is configured for VTY users by running the authentication-mode aaa command in the user view:
When you log in to the device as an administrator at level 3 or above, use the following methods to enable or disable password strength check:
1. AAA view
Run the user-password complexity-check command in the local AAA server view or AAA view to enable password strength check.
Run the undo user-password complexity-check command in the local AAA server view or AAA view to disable password strength check.
2. System view
Run the user-security-policy enable command in the system view to globally enable the security policy function for local accounts and configure strength check for both the names and passwords of local AAA users.
Run the undo user-security-policy enable command in the system view to disable the security policy function for local accounts.
For V600R009C00 and later, if password authentication is configured for VTY users by running the authentication-mode password command in the user view:
(1) Run the undo user-interface password complexity-check disable command in the system view to enable password strength check.
(2) Run the user-interface password complexity-check disable command in the system view to disable password strength check.

VRP8:
When you log in to the device as an administrator at level 3 or above, use the following methods to enable or disable password strength check:
1. AAA view
Run the user-password complexity-check command in the local AAA server view or AAA view to enable password strength check.
Run the undo user-password complexity-check command in the local AAA server view or AAA view to disable password strength check.
2. System view
Run the user-security-policy enable command in the system view to globally enable the security policy function for local accounts and configure strength check for both the names and passwords of local AAA users.
Run the undo user-security-policy enable command in the system view to disable the security policy function for local accounts.
