Usage Guidelines

You need to create a user account using the create account command before you can display user account information.

To view the accounts that have been created, you must have administrator privileges.

This command displays the following information in a tabular format:
  • User Name—The name of the user. This list displays all of the users who have access to the switch.

  • Access—This may be listed as R/W for read/write or RO for read only.

  • Login OK—The number of logins that are okay.

  • Failed—The number of failed logins.

  • Accounts locked out—Account configured to be locked out after three consecutive failed login attempts (using the configure account password-policy lockout-on-login-failures command).


    This command does not show the failsafe account.


The following command displays user account information on the switch:
