Add Users and Groups to the Directory Service

If you use MCS directory, you can add users and/or groups as needed. Regardless of the directory service you use, you can create virtual groups, which you can use to organize users within MCS and simplify assigning access rights.

Note The MCS System Administrators virtual group is created when you install MCS. If you upgrade from a version earlier than MCS version 2.2, this group automatically includes all users who had been given access to the MCS console in the previous version. All users in the MCS System Administrators virtual group have rights to all use services within the MCS console.
To add a user or group to the directory service
  1. In the MCS left pane, point to Services and then click Security.

  2. In the Security tree, click Plus sign next to Directory Services, or double-click Directory Services.

  3. Click Directory.

  4. In the Directory page, click one of the following toolbar buttons, depending on what you'd like to add. For directory services other than MCS directory, only the New Virtual Group button is available.
    Select
    To display

    New User
    The New User dialog box, in which you add a new user to the MCS directory.

    New Group
    The New Group dialog box, in which you can add a new group to the MCS directory.

    New Virtual Group
    The New Virtual Group dialog box, in which you can add a new virtual group, regardless of the directory service you use. Virtual groups exist only within MCS; they do not become part of your directory service.
  5. After completing the necessary information, choose OK. The new user or group is added to the Directory list.
