Configure settings at one or more monitored APC SNMP devices.
Note: You cannot use this option to configure settings for non-APC SNMP devices, NetBotz Appliances and their monitored devices, and some older APC SNMP devices.
Configuration Type display options
These options, and the Configuration Status view, are used by the APC SNMP Device Configuration wizard:
User configuration for NMC v6.0.0 and higher: Configure user management options on devices with firmware v6.0.0 and higher, excluding v6.0.6 - v6.1.1.
All other APC SNMP devices: Select one or more monitored APC SNMP devices and configure them to use settings shared with a selected APC SNMP device, or settings saved as a template.
The "Configuration Type" display is available only when at least one monitored APC SNMP device has firmware v6.0.0 and higher, excluding v6.0.6 - v6.1.1. Otherwise, the "Select a Configuration Action" display is immediately available to configure all other device configuration settings.
Note: You must upload a .csf file directly to the device to configure users on devices with firmware v6.0.6 - v6.1.1. See FAQs on www.apc.com for more information.
User configuration for NMC v6.0.0 and higher option
Select Destination Devices display
Select the destination devices you want to configure user management on. All the APC SNMP SNMPv1 and SNMPv3 devices monitored by the Data Center Expert server with firmware v6.0.0 and higher, excluding v6.0.6 - v6.1.1, are listed.
Click "Device File Transfer Settings" to manage the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or Secure Copy (SCP) access values for the APC devices.
User Configuration display
Use this display to select the user management actions you want to configure on all the devices you selected. For specific information about how to configure user actions, see the user guide for your device.
Create/Modify User: Configure the settings for the user you want to create or modify. You must configure this action individually for each user.
Once you specify the username and password, check the box to configure each option.
When you modify a user that already exists on any destination device, all the settings you select, including the password, will be overwritten.
|Username||The name of the user|
Specify the password for a new user or enter a new password for an existing user if you want to change it.
The password is case-sensitive, with a 64 byte maximum (64 ASCII characters, fewer for multibyte languages).
Specify the user role: Administrator, Device, Network only, or Read only
Additional notes to describe the user.
|Date Format||The date format to display in the device user interface.|
The language to display in the device user interface.
The units, Metric (the default) or US Customary, to display in the device user interface.
|Session Timeout (min)||
The amount of time (in minutes) before the user is logged out due to inactivity.
Serial Remote Authentication Override
Specify whether the user can login serially and override a logged in user, even when the device authentication method is set to RADIUS.
|Event Log Color Coding||
Specify whether text in the event log is color-coded based on event severity.
|Log Export Format||
The format of the event log when exported: Tab (the default) or CSV.
Specify whether the user has access to login in to the device.
Enter command line parameters to configure additional user options. For example, to configure the role Outlet, enter -pe "Outlet" in this field. For more information, see the Command Line Interface manual for your device at www.apc.com.
Modify Super User: The name of the super user cannot be changed. The current password for the super user is required.
You can enter a new password for the super user if you want to change it. Otherwise, leave the field blank.
Modify Default User: Additional configuration options to modify the default settings used when a Super User or Administrator for the device creates a new user:
The number of incorrect login attempts a user is allowed before the system disables the account.
Require Strong Passwords
Specify whether new passwords created for users require additional rules, such as: at least one lowercase character, one uppercase character, one number, and one symbol.
Require Password Change (days)
Select the duration (in days) after which the user is required to change the password, 0-365. A value of 0 days (the default) disables this option.
Standard device configuration settings option
Configure devices using a monitored APC SNMP device's settings, create or edit a template, and configure devices using a saved template.
