Add an administrator account

  1. Select Accounts > Administrators.
  2. The Administrators page is displayed.
  3. Click New Administrator.
  4. The New Administrator page is displayed.
  5. In the Administrator Name field, enter a name for the administrator. Administrator names are case-sensitive.
  6. Select the Administrative Role for the new administrator.
  7. Select Password is stored locally (not in external directory) to store the administrator password locally and not in an external directory. If this option is selected, completing the Password field is mandatory. If this option is not selected, the only mandatory parameters for creating an administrator are Administrator Name and Administrative Role.
