Selecting an administrator account
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2
On the ADAM Administrators page, you must select a user or group to become the default administrator for this Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) instance. This user or group that you select will have full administrative control of the ADAM instance.
By default, the ADAM Setup Wizard specifies the currently logged on user. You can change this selection to any local or domain account or group on your network.
To select an administrator account
On the ADAM Administrators page, do one of the following, and then click Next:
Click Currently logged on user.
Click This account, click Browse, and then select a local or domain account or group.
- Click Currently logged on user.
If you specify a group to become the ADAM administrator, every member of that group will have administrative control of the ADAM instance.
The user or group that you select automatically becomes a member of the Administrators group in the configuration directory partition of the ADAM instance. For more information about users and groups in ADAM, see Related Topics.
Do not specify built-in groups or built-in accounts, such as DOMAIN\Administrators. Instead, if you want to specify a group, specify a domain group, such as domainname\Domain Admins, where domainname represents the name of your domain.
