Assign POA users to unmanaged endpoints

To assign POA users to unmanaged endpoints, you need Read only or Full access rights for the relevant POA group.

POA users are assigned to unmanaged endpoints (operating in standalone mode) in configuration packages.

  1. In the SafeGuard Management Center, select Configuration Package Tool from the Tools menu.
  2. Select an existing configuration package or create a new one.
  3. Specify a POA Group created beforehand in the Users and Computers area of the SafeGuard Management Center, to be applied to the endpoints.

    A no list group is available for selection by default. This group can be used to delete a POA group assignment on endpoints.

  4. Specify an output path for the configuration package.
  5. Click Create Configuration Package.
  6. Deploy the configuration package to the endpoints.

By installing the configuration package, the users included in the group are added to the SafeGuard POA on the endpoints. The POA users are available for POA logon.

Note: When you upgrade unmanaged endpoints to managed, the POA users remain active, if they have also been assigned in the SafeGuard Management Center. The passwords set in the POA groups deployed in configuration packages are set to the ones specified in the SafeGuard Management Center. Passwords changed using F8 are overwritten.
