database-client-policy global-config

Creates a database-client-policy and enters its configuration mode. The database-client-policy is only needed in deployments implementing captive-portal registration and database authentication with an onboard database. If enforcing database authentication, configure the user-name and password required to access the database on the database-client-policy.


For more information on enabling database authentication, see Example: Enabling Database Authentication.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX9500, NX9600, VX9000


database-client-policy <DATABASE-CLIENT-POLICY-NAME>


database-client-policy <DATABASE-CLIENT-POLICY-NAME>
database-client-policy <DATABASE-CLIENT-POLICY-NAME> Specify the database-client-policy name. If the policy does not exist, it is created.

Once created and configured, apply this policy on the device hosting the database.
