Identifying users and servers to LAN Manager

The security administrator for LAN Manager must define principals (defined users) to the security mechanism. Use LAN Manager’s User Manager utility to identify all users for the system.

You do not need to enter the Adaptive Server name as a principal to LAN Manager. However, the NT user account that you use to start Adaptive Server must be defined as a valid principal to LAN Manager. For example, to use an NT account named “servadmin” to start Adaptive Server, you must define “servadmin” as a principal to LAN Manager.

This rule applies whether you start Adaptive Server through Sybase Central or as an NT service. See the Adaptive Server Enterprise Installation Guide for Windows NT.

For detailed information about the User Manager utility, see your Windows NT documentation.
