Managing user accounts
To manage user accounts, you must be a member of either the Domain Admins or the Domain Power Users security group.
Windows® Small Business Server 2003 allows for centralized user account management by using Server Management or Server Management for Power Users. Each of these consoles contain a taskpad called Manage Users, which displays a list of user accounts and provides a set of administrative tasks, such as adding, updating, and renaming user accounts, and setting password policies.
- Only Domain Admins can delete user accounts.
You create user accounts by using the Add User Wizard. User accounts are based on templates. You can create one user account at a time or create many user accounts at once, all based on the same template.
If you need to change group memberships or Windows SharePoint Services site group memberships for a group of users, you can update the user template on which those user accounts were based and reapply the updated template to the group of users. Reapplying the user template updates the group memberships and Windows SharePoint Services site group memberships but does not change any permissions that were manually applied to a specific user account.
After creating user accounts and configuring the client computers, you can apply strong password policies to help secure your network.
Disk quotas and Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 mailbox quotas are enabled for users. Disk quotas are only in effect on the server volume where the Users shared folder is located. By default, users can store up to 1 gigabyte (GB) of data on that volume. By default, e-mail quotas limit the size of an individual user's mailbox to 200 megabytes (MB).
