You can use this initial account to create other user accounts that can access Office Project Server 2007. For example, this initial account could be used to create the user accounts that will serve as Project Server administrators, who will in turn create other user accounts and will do additional post-installation configuration.

You can use the Manage Users page that is available from the Server Settings page to add new individual users, modify existing users, deactivate user accounts, and reactivate inactive user accounts.
