After deploying vCloud Usage Meter, you can verify if a user account password complies with the password strength restrictions.


  1. Log in to the vCloud Usage Meter console as root.
  2. To verify if a user account password meet the security requirements, run the command.
    echo $user-name_user-password | cracklib-check

    If you receive system output like user-name_user-password: OK, your password is considered as compliant.

    If the password is not compliying with the security restrictions, you must configure a new password.
