Set User Name and Password Restrictions

You can specify certain restrictions on user account names and passwords to ensure that it is difficult to gain unauthorized access.

To configure user account name and password restrictions

  1. Open the HPE IDOL Server configuration file in a text editor.

  2. Find the [User] section, or create one if it does not exist.

  3. Set the MinUsernameLength parameter to the minimum number of characters allowed for user names. For example:

    MinUsernameLength=6
  4. Set the MinPasswordLength parameter to the minimum number of characters allowed for passwords. For example:

    MinPasswordLength=6
  5. Set the PasswordStrength parameter to the minimum allowed strength of passwords. This parameter uses a scale from 1 (weakest) to 10 (strongest). For example:

    PasswordStrength=6

    To increase password strength, users must create passwords that contain a mixture of upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and punctuation.

  6. Save and close the configuration file. Restart HPE IDOL Server for your changes to take effect.
