Copying a user account

To create a copy of a user account, right-click the account, click Copy, and then follow the instructions in the wizard. The first step of the wizard looks as shown in the following figure.

Figure 5: Copying a user account

The copy of a user account belongs to the same Windows groups as that (original) user account.

Steps for copying a user account

To copy a user account

  1. In the console tree, locate and select the folder that contains the user account that you want to copy.
  2. In the details pane, right-click the user account you want to copy, and then click Copy to start the Copy Object - User wizard.
  3. Follow the wizard pages to specify properties for the copy of the user account, such as the user first name, last name, full name, display name, logon name, pre-Windows 2000 logon name, password, and Exchange mailbox settings.
  4. If you want to set values for additional properties (those for which the wizard pages do not provide data entries), click Edit Attributes on the completion page of the wizard.
  5. After setting any additional properties for the copy of the user account, click Finish on the completion page of the wizard.


  • The behavior of the wizard pages may vary depending on the configuration of Active Roles policies. To determine whether a given item on a page is under the control of a certain policy, observe the text label next to the item: the underlined text label indicates that some policy restrictions are in effect. Click underlined text labels to examine the policies that govern the behavior of the wizard pages.
  • By default, some commonly-used properties are carried over to the newly copied user account from the original account. Thus, the group memberships is copied from the original account: if the original account is a member of a given group, the Copy Object - User wizard automatically adds the copy of the account to that group.
