How To Add New Users to Workgroup Manager

Step 1

Either login at the server using the network administrative name and password or login at a workstation that has the Workgroup Manager Admin application installed.

Step 2

Open Workgroup Manager

a) If you are on the server Workgroup Manager Admin will be on the Dock

b) If you are on a workstation Workgroup Manager Admin will be in a folder titled Server in either Applications or Applications/Utilities.


Step 3

Enter the server address, admin name and password and click on Connect.


Step 4

In the Accounts pane click on the ID column heading to sort the users by their ID; user ID’s have been setup using their expected graduation year. See Note 1


Step 5

Select the appropriate Preset from the menu in the bottom middle of the page. Scroll through the User list to the last user ID in the corresponding graduation class. Click on “New Record”, fill in the Name and Short Name(s) fields. Change the User ID to the next available number in the graduating class series. Enter the users password in the password and verify fields. Click on Save. If all of your workstations are OS X clients you are done. If you have OS 9 clients proceed to Step 6 to import users into Macintosh Manager.
