Creating User Accounts
- In the User Account Manager, select User»New User.
- Enter the domain name of the new user in the Username field.
- Enter the Full Name of the user.
- Enter job titles or other relevant information in the Description field.
- Enter the user password in the Password field.
- Enter the password a second time in the Confirm Password field to make sure there was no typing error in the first entry.
- Set the Security Level for the new user. Security levels range from 0 to 10, with 10 being the highest possible security authorization. Assign level 10 access only to those people responsible for system security.
- Minutes idle until logoff sets how long your application runs with no operator interaction before logging the current user off automatically. Setting this value to 0 (the default) means there is no timeout in effect.
- You can set an expiration time for passwords. Users cannot reset their own password; a member of the Administrator group must set the password for them. The default is for passwords never to expire.
- Place a checkmark in the Account Disabled checkbox if you want to disable a user account without removing the user from the system.
- Click the Groups button to add this user to various local security groups. The Group Memberships dialog box appears. The built-in groups are Administrators, Guests, Operators, and System Operators. Any groups you have created are also shown.
- To enter a user in a group, highlight the group in the Not Member of field and
click the Add button. To remove a user from membership in a group, highlight a group
in the Member of field and click the Remove button.
Note When you add an individual user whose individual account has a security level different than that of the group, that user has the higher of the security levels.
- Click the OK button.
