Configuring SGM User-Based Access


Cisco Signaling Gateway Manager User Guide


To enable Solaris authentication, enter the following command:

# ./sgm authtype solaris

See the

“SGM Command Reference” section on page C-1

for more

information on the use of each of the above SGM commands.

Step 4

To add a user to your SGM User-Based Access authentication list, use the
following command:

# ./sgm sgm adduser username

where username is the name of the user.


If sgm authtype is set to solaris, you must be logged in as the root user, not as a
super user, to enter this command.

SGM also prompts you for the authentication level for the user. Valid levels are:

1—Basic User

2—Power User

3—Network Operator

4—Network Administrator

5—System Administrator

For more information about authentication levels, see the

“Configuring SGM User

Authentication Levels (Solaris Only)” section on page 18-6


If sgm authtype is set to local, SGM also issues the following prompts:

SGM prompts you for the user’s password. When setting the password, follow
the rules and considerations in the

“Creating Secure Passwords” section on

page 18-5


SGM asks whether you want to force the user to change the password at the
next login. The default is not to force the user to change the password.

(Whenever a user needs to change a password, SGM issues an appropriate
message and prompts for the user name and new password.)
