Brocade - administrator account is enabled with admin role assigned


Role-Based Action Control (RBAC) specifies the permissions that a user account has based on the role the account has been assigned.

The role that your account is associated with determines the level of access you have on that switch and in the fabric.


User configuration policies are configured using the userconfig command command

swd77:admin> userconfig --change admin -e yes

swd77:admin> userconfig --change root -r admin
