When you add a new administrator, you select a level of access and enable specific rights. You can set up accounts for one administrator at a time, or for groups of administrators. You can add local administrators by entering information manually, or you can add administrators using information present in LDAP directory structures.
To set up accounts for local administrators
You add local administrators by entering user data manually. Once the administrator's information has been entered, you can apply an existing administration policy to that administrator, or create a new, custom policy. Follow the steps below to add a single administrator and assign an administration policy that specifies the administrator's rights.

In the Confirm password box, type the password again to confirm it.
In the Email address box, type the email address of the administrator.
If this administrator is to receive system alerts, check Receive Alert Notifications.

To set up accounts for LDAP administrators
To add administrators using LDAP directories, you first create a new data source or configure an existing one to enable authentication and address resolution. See Adding a data source.
Once your data source is configured, follow the steps below to add LDAP administrators.
Setting up accounts for LDAP administrators
In the Control Center, click Administration > Users > Policy Groups, and do one of the following:
If the policy group to which you want to add administrators exists, click to select it, and then click Add. The Edit Policy Group page appears. See Adding members to a policy group.
If the policy group to which you want to add administrators does not exist, click Add with no group name selected. The Edit Policy Group page appears. See Creating a policy group.
Once you have added members to the policy group, click the Administration tab and then enable and select an Administration policy for the group. If you want to change the specific rights for the administration policy, click Administration > Policies > Administration, select the policy, and click Edit. Edit the Administration group policy as desired.
