The Account Manager interface

The Account Manager interface

The Account Manager allows you to create or modify user accounts. You can start the Account Manager in any of these ways:

For more information on using SCOadmin managers, see ``Administering your system with SCOadmin'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook.

The main display of the Account Manager includes a list of accounts on the system. The icons (or characters) in the ``Status'' column indicate the type of account and its status. By default, the Status information is not displayed to keep startup time to a minimum. To display status information, select Show Status from the Options menu.


WARNING: If you have a large number of accounts on the system, the collection of status information takes a long time and will delay startup of the Account Manager. We recommend not using the Show Status selection under these circumstances.

You can display a list of groups on the system by selecting Groups from the View menu.
