Editing Administrator Accounts

  1. In the Administrators section of the Local Services sidebar, click the name of the administrator account that you want to edit.

    The Manager Status page, containing the Edit User table, is displayed.

  2. Change the information for the selected account as required.

    The text boxes that can be changed are:

    • Name: You can change the full name of the user.
    • Enabled: You can change whether the account is enabled or not.
    • Password and Confirm Password: You can reset the admin user’s password.

      Note If, at some point, you choose to temporarily disable an administrator account, you must reset the password when you re-enable the account.
    • Member of: You can change which groups the user is a member of. Click the name of the group to access the Edit Group page, which shows the access permissions that are granted to that group.
    • Permissions: You can change the user permissions that are granted in addition to the permissions granted by group membership(s).

      Note The permissions mostly equate to which tabs (actually modules) that the user can access. The modules that differ from the available tabs are:
      • View message content - Determines whether the user can view message content in the quarantine search results lists.
      • RPC - Required to make any changes on remote systems on the Server Groups tab, such as starting, restarting, or stopping services on, and publishing configuration settings to, remote systems.
      • RPC: view status - Lets users view information on remote systems on the Server Groups tab, but does not permit them to make changes.
      • miniserv - This module must be selected to enable the next option, "Session authentication never expires".
      • Session authentication never expires - This should always be granted, or the users ability to log on will expire.
  3. Once you have finished making changes, click Save.
