Search for Users

Use the Search for users control to locate particular users on a host's Users tab or the All Local Users tab.

To search for users

  1. From the All Hosts view, double-click a host name to open its properties and select the Users tab.
  2. Place your cursor in the Search for users box and enter one or more characters. As you enter characters into the text box, the mangement console redisplays only the users whose Name, UID, GID, GECOS, Login Shell, or AD User matches (contains) the criteria entered.
  3. To clear the text box and redisplay the original list, select to the right of the Search for users box.
  4. To further filter the list by type of user, open the user type drop-down menu and choose one of the following:
    • All users
    • All non-system users
    • System user
    • Users requiring AD logon (requires Authentication Services 4.x)
    • Users not requiring AD logon (requires Authentication Services 4.x)

Modify User Properties

Modify a local Unix user's properties from either the Users view of a host's properties or the All Local Users tab.

To modify a user's properties

  1. Right-click the user name and choose Properties.

    You can also double-click the user name to open its properties.

  2. On the General tab, modify the user information.
  3. On the Member Of tab, add or remove local groups.
  4. On the AD Logon tab, specify if this user is required to use an Active Directory password to log on to the host. This allows you to "map" a local user to an Active Directory account.

    Note: This feature is only available when you are logged in as an Active Directory user for a host that is joined to Active Directory.

  5. Click OK to save the changes.
  6. On the Log on to Host dialog, enter the user credentials and click OK.

    Note: This task requires elevated credentials.

Modify Multiple User's Properties

Modify multiple local Unix user's properties from either the Users view of a host's properties or the All Local Users tab.

To modify multiple user's properties simultaneously

  1. Select two or more user names and right-click to reveal the context menu.
  2. Choose the Properties option.

    The Properties: Multiple Users dialog displays.

  3. On the General tab, modify:
    1. Comments (GECOS)
    2. Login shell

      Optionally, you can click the Select Shell button to browse for a local login shell.

  4. Click OK to save the changes.
  5. On the Log on to Host dialog, enter the user credentials and click OK.

    Note: This task requires elevated credentials.

Reset Local User's Password

Change a user's password from either the Users view of a host's properties or from the All Local Users tab.

Note: The Set Local User Password option is not available for users required to log in with Active Directory authentication because root does not have permission to change a password stored in Active Directory.

To change a local user's password

  1. Select one or more user name(s), right-click and choose Set Local User Password from the context menu.

  2. Enter the new password for the user(s) and click OK.

  3. On the Log on to Host dialog, enter the user credentials and click OK.

    Note: This task requires elevated credentials.
