Managing Users

 

Topic Last Modified: 2011-02-09


The user account used to install Microsoft Forefront Protection Server Management Console (FPSMC) (called the Installation Administrator) is automatically granted access to the Console. Users who need to use the FPSMC to perform management tasks must be added by means of the administration console, using the steps outlined in this topic. Additionally, added user accounts must have local administrator rights on the computer hosting the FPSMC.

Once a user has been added to the FPSMC, they can access any part of the console.

If you would like to watch a video that walks you through the process for adding a user account, see Configuring FPSMC on TechNet Edge.

To add a user account
  1. Click User Management, located in the Administration section of the Navigation Area, to open the User Management work pane.

  2. Click Add Users to open the Add Users work pane.

  3. Add users by either entering the accounts in the Choose Users field, or clicking Browse and selecting the users from the Users field that you wish to add.

    NoteNote:
    When managing users on servers that are not in the same domain or as the FPSMC, you must enter the users as fully qualified domain names (FQDN) in order for them to be resolved as user objects. For example, if you’d like to add a user from the example.treyresearch.net domain, you would enter example.treyresearch.net\UserName in the Choose Users field. You cannot use the Browse button to locate users that are not in the same domain.
    Adding users and servers from a domain with an external trust is not supported.
    1. If you are selecting user accounts using the Browse button, select the appropriate domain under the Domains list.

    2. Select the user account you’d like to add by clicking on it to highlight the account. To select multiple user accounts, select the first account, and click and hold the Ctrl button while you select additional accounts.

    3. Once you have selected the user accounts you’d like to add, click Add.

  4. Click Verify to validate the existence of the user accounts.

  5. Click Add Users. The FPSMC returns you to the User Management work pane and the new users are added to the Users pane.

The User Management work pane may be used to delete user accounts. When a user account is deleted, the user account can no longer be used to access the FPSMC.

To delete a user account
  1. Click User Management, located in the Administration section of the Navigation Area, to open the User Management work pane.

  2. In the User Management work pane, select the user accounts that you wish to delete.

  3. Click Delete Users.

  4. Click Confirm to verify that you wish to delete the user account. The FPSMC will return you to the User Management work pane and the deleted account will no longer appear in the Users pane. The deleted user account can no longer be used to access the FPSMC.
