Administrator users

Only privileged authenticated users are allowed to administrate and configure the appliance. The main administrator user is named "admin". This user exists by default in the system and has the highest privilege.

Secondary administrator users with fewer privileges may be added to the system. Secondary administrators have the ability to manage the appliance configuration but cannot apply a new configuration (only the "admin" user has this privilege). Some secondary administrative operations like the "log rotation" or "cache loadurl" are allowed for these users. The command "admin user" allows you to manage secondary administrator users.

To create a new administrator user called "manager" use the following command:

Now the administrator user "manager" can login to the system. By default no password is required for new secondary administrator users - It is highly recommended to set up one as soon as possible. The command "password" allows password set-up.

Note that only the main administrator user "admin" may manage (add or delete) secondary administrator users. The administrator user "admin" cannot be deleted.
