The Administrators snapshot enables you to create new administrators, edit administrator attributes, and delete administrators.

The main administrator is always called "Administrator." This cannot be changed or renamed. However, you can change the password.

To create a new administrator:


Click on New in the Administrator snapshot title bar.


The Add New Administrator dialog appears on the screen (see Figure 6.1).

Figure 6.1. Add New Administrator dialog box.


Enter the administrator name and password, retype the password, and click OK.


You can change the administrator password later by clicking on the name of the administrator, and then clicking on Change Password at the top of the navigation bar on the left side of the screen.

After you have created an administrator, you can further configure the administrator by clicking on the name. This takes you to the Administrator Configuration view (see Figure 6.2).

  • Allow the creation of other administrators

Mark the check box next to the administrator you want to edit. The options for New and Delete become active.
