Adding User Management Permissions to the LCMADAM instance

Full access to all AD LDS partitions created during LifeCycle Manager server installation is by default restricted to the user who installed the LifeCycle Manager server. Therefore, by default, only this user has permissions to create new users and groups in the LCMADAM instance.

If for some reason the original install user can't log into the server, the LCMADAM instance can't be managed. Therefore, Infor recommends that you grant this permission to other users.

Adding User Management Permissions to the LCMADAM instance

  1. Log in to the LifeCycle Manager server machine using the same account which installed LifeCycle Manager.
  2. Run ADSI Edit.
  3. Click on Action->Connect to.
  4. Connect to Configuration Naming Context.
  5. In the left pane, expand Configuration->CN=Configuration,CN=…->CN=Roles.
  6. In the right pane, double click on CN=Administrators.
  7. Scroll down to the member attribute and click Edit.
  8. Click Add Windows Account.
  9. Enter the groups or users you want to have permissions to manage the LCMADAM instance.
  10. Click OK->OK.
  11. Exit ADSI Edit tool.
  12. Restart the LCMADAM Windows service.
  13. Restart the LCM Server service.

Now, the members of groups/users added to the Configuration Naming Context Administrators Role can manage the AD LDS LCMADAM instance.
