EMS QuickStart Guide

Configuring user accounts

You can configure users to have no access or administrator access to FortiClient EMS. You can configure EMS users, local Windows users, LDAP users, or local Windows users and LDAP users.

For EMS users, you create a new user account from EMS.

For local Windows users, the user list is derived from the server where FortiClient EMS is installed. If you want to add more users, you must add them to the server.

For LDAP users, you must add an LDAP server to FortiClient EMS, then configure users.

To add an LDAP server:
  1. Go Administration > User Servers. Click Add.
  2. Configure the options, and click Test.
  3. If the test is successful, click Save.
To configure users:
  1. Go to Administration > Administrators.
  2. Click Add from the toolbar.
  3. In the User list, select Choose from LDAP/Windows users or Create a new user.
  4. Configure the user's administrator role. See the FortiClient EMS Administration Guide.
