Creating an Administrator Account

About this task

Permissions are assigned on the basis of group/administrator pairs. It is therefore necessary to create the accounts the administrators will use to access the groups.

To create an administrator account:

Follow these steps

  1. At the command line, as the "pmx6" user, run the following:
    pmx-user --add --username <Username> --fullname <Fullname> --email <Address>

    where Username is the system name that you assign, Fullname is the user's actual name and Address is the email address that has been specified in a group.

    You are prompted to enter a password.

  2. Type in a password for this administrator, and press Enter .

    You are prompted to verify the password.

  3. Re-enter the password.

    A message is displayed advising that the user has been added.
