Configure Group-Specific Settings

Use group subconfigurations to apply settings to all members of a specified group.

Note: To ensure a greater degree of security, it is advisable to configure global settings that are more restrictive than group settings. With this model, you use group settings to increase, rather than decrease, access. Doing this helps to ensure settings that are more restrictive for a user whose group membership cannot be determined.

To configure group-specific settings

  1. Start the server console, and then click Configuration.
  2. Under Subconfiguration, click Group Configuration.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Specify the group type.

    Do this

    Local group (configured on the server computer)

    Select Local (the default).

    Select Domain, and then specify the domain name.

  5. In the Group box, type the name of the group.
  6. Click any of the available panels and modify the settings you want to apply to this group.

    Note: When you change a setting in a subconfiguration panel, a blue asterisk appears next to that setting (non-inherited setting icon (asterisk)). This indicates that the setting is no longer inherited from the global configuration.

  7. Click OK.
  8. Click File > Save.
