The License Administration Console can use License Administration users, local Windows users and groups, and Active Directory users and groups. The Citrix Licensing Manager can use local Windows users and groups and Active Directory users and groups. The License Administration Console manages them all. These users are not connected to the computer local users.
The Active Directory users and groups are part of an Active Directory/network authentication system. To support them, ensure that the Windows License Server is a member of a Microsoft Active Directory domain and running the License Administration Console. Windows NT domains are not supported.
The License Server VPX does not support Active Directory or the Citrix Licensing Manager.
Users are configured with local roles. All users are created as administrators and can:
Administrators must type user name and password when opening the Administration area. Settings in Server Configuration allow you to secure the Dashboard by optionally requiring users to log on. If Password Protected Dashboard is enabled, all users accessing the License Administration Console must log on.
What types of accounts are added at installation
A default administrator account is created during installation of the License Administration Console. Use the administrator account to first log on to the console and then configure more users.
During installation of the License Administration Console, accounts are added based on machine membership. For workgroup machine installations, computer\InstallUser and BUILTIN\Administrators are added. For Active Directory installations, domain\InstallUser and BUILTIN\Administrators are added. You can remove any of these accounts after installation, but ensure that there is at least one administrator.
Alerts display on the Dashboard and are classified as critical or important. Administrators can select which alerts appear on the Dashboard and set the thresholds that trigger them.
