Installing and then publishing the Web interface extensions adds a number of pages and commands to the ActiveRoles Server Web interface, enabling the management of Unix-specific information in Active Directory.
These pages and commands include:
View or modify Unix-related properties of a Windows user account.
View or modify Unix-related properties of a Windows group.

From the Customization menu on the main page of the ActiveRoles Server Web Interface, choose the Reload option.
|NOTE: If you do not see the Customization link on the ActiveRoles Server Web interface on Windows 2008 R2, run the browser with elevated privileges.|
You can manage the Unix-specific information for a Windows user account from the ActiveRoles Server web interface.
To Unix-enable a user
Modify any of the Unix-related properties.
The UID Number is the unique identifier for a Unix user. Ideally, each Windows user is assigned a unique UID number. By default the Integration Pack generates a unique ID automatically. If you change the User ID, the Integration Pack checks to ensure the specified value is unique among Unix-enabled users.
|NOTE: The Primary Group box displays the Domain Name of the group corresponding to the Primary Group ID. You can click Change to browse Unix-enabled groups to find the Primary Group by name.|
To Unix-disable a user
Unix-disabling a user changes his login shell to bin/false.
After you Unix-disable a user, you may want to clear that user's Unix attributes.
To clear Unix attributes
|NOTE: When you click Save, if there is a Unix property in any of the fields, the Integration Pack makes no changes to the user's Unix properties.|
