Applies To: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials

When you activate a user account, the assigned user can log on to the network and access network resources to which the account has permission, such as shared folders and the Remote Access Web site.

noteNote
You can only activate a user account that is deactivated. You cannot activate a user account once you remove it from the server.

To activate a user account

  1. Open the Windows SBS 2011 Essentials Dashboard.

  2. On the main navigation bar, click Users.

  3. In the list view, select the user account that you want to activate.

  4. In the <User Account> Tasks pane, click Activate the user account.

  5. In the pop-up window, click Yes to confirm your action.

noteNote
After you activate a user account, the status for the account displays Active. The user account regains the same access rights that were assigned prior to account deactivation.
