Non admin default password doesn't work on SPA112

No problem to login as default admin/admin via WWW interface. Unfortunately, default password is not so secure.

So I added following lines to provisioning:



    <Web_Login_Admin_Name ua="na">admin</Web_Login_Admin_Name>

    <Web_Login_Admin_Password ua="na">2password3</Web_Login_Admin_Password>

    <Web_Login_Guest_Name ua="na">guest</Web_Login_Guest_Name>

    <Web_Login_Guest_Password ua="na">guest</Web_Login_Guest_Password>


Despite of it, I can login using default password (both admin and user) but not new name/password.

Also, re-downloaded configuration (either via http://.../admin/config.xml or using SIP NOTIFY) show that default user database has not been changed:




<!-- <Web_Login_Admin_Password></Web_Login_Admin_Password> -->


<!-- <Web_Login_Guest_Password></Web_Login_Guest_Password> -->



Is there a special procedure to change user name/password via provisioning file ?

Debug log show nothing suspicious during parse of provisioning file ...

Somebody with "it works" experience here ?

Can you send me the provisioning file and the debug log that you have for this failure?

I have a spa122 and I can change the admin password via provisioning.

You can email those to me.  nseto at

Sent by classic email. Thank you.

1. I founded bug in my configuration file - container must appear only once in configuration file and must be on it's end. Annoying change against PAP2T/SPA50xG behavior ( file become non-flat and order of directives is important), but such change is documented - see "Nested Structure" paragraph of provisioning guide

2. Despite of it, other bug in configuration of username/password has been found. ID of bug report created by Nelson is CSCuc24784


Non admin default password doesn't work on SPA112

I'm having the exact same problem.  Also with SPA112.  The fact you and I both had the problem within a couple of days gives me hope that it's caused by the latest firmware, or by something simple that's wrong with the config.

I think the rest of my config is being accepted by the ATA.
