When you add a user account, the assigned user can log on to the network, and you can give the user permission to access network resources such as shared folders and the Remote Access Web site. Windows SBS 2011 Essentials includes the Add a User Account Wizard that helps you:

  • Provide a name and password for the user account.

  • Define the account as either an Administrator or as a Standard user.

  • Select which shared folders the user account can access.

  • Specify if the user account has remote access to the network.

  • Select e-mail options if applicable.

    The e-mail options are only available if you install an add-in that provides e-mail service.

To add a user account

  1. Open the Windows SBS 2011 Essentials Dashboard.

  2. On the main navigation bar, click Users.

  3. In the All Users Tasks pane, click Add a user account. The Add a User Account Wizard appears.

  4. Follow the instructions to complete the wizard.
