To create the user accounts and user groups that will access Adaptive Server over trusted connections, run the User Manager from the Administrative Tools (Common) menu. To access this menu, choose Start/Programs.
Keep the following guidelines in mind when creating groups and users:
Make sure that NT users and groups exist before you assign permissions to them in Adaptive Server.
Create the accounts with a user name other than “sa”.
Some functions that were assigned to the “sa” user in earlier versions of Adaptive Server are now divided between the sa_role and sso_role. You may want to assign both roles to Adaptive Server system administrators to provide the same permission level on an upgraded system. For more information, see the System Administration Guide.
Begin planning the permission levels you want to assign to the users and groups.
Although it may seem intuitive to grant the sa_role to the NT Administrators group, the choice ultimately depends on the security requirements for your site.
When using integrated security features for the first time, consider restricting the permission level to a small group of NT users. After you become more experienced with administering integrated security, you can expand the permission levels to include NT groups.
