The NT User Import dialog can be used to import NT domain users into the QPR User Management System.

 

note

Note

With Windows 2003, regular (i.e. non-administrator) users must be included in the Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access group of the Domain Controller in the Windows 2003 Domain Environment in order to see all the users in the domain when performing an NT import.

 

NT Users

Domain: From this drop-down box, select the NT domain from which you would like to import users.

The Get local groups of selected NT domain and Get global groups of selected NT domain options define whether the local or global groups are displayed in the Group drop-down box.

Group: From this drop-down box, select the group within the selected domain from which you would like to import users.

Users in selected domain and group: The users from the selected domain and group are displayed in this list.

Hide existing users: Select this check box if you do not want to display the users that are already in the QPR User Management System.

 

 

Imported Users

Imported users: Users who have been selected to be imported are displayed on this list.

To import the NT domain users, select the NT domain users shown in the "Users in selected domain and group" list and click the Import (>)  button. The users will then appear in the list on the Imported Users side. To import all of the users shown in the list, simply click the Import All (>>) button. When you are importing users and you have at least one group in UMS, the Select group dialog opens, allowing you to decide on what group(s) the user will be imported to. If you wish to modify the choice of groups after the import, select the user to be modified and click the Show Groups button to reopen the Select group  dialog.

 

Once the users have been selected to be imported, ie. the users to be imported appear on the Imported Users list and the groups have been defined, click OK.

 

Password Generation Type

Next the imported users must be assigned passwords. This is performed in the Password Generation Type dialog. In this dialog you can select to either Generate random passwords  for each imported user or Assign a default password  that applies to all imported users.

If you select to generate random passwords, then each user will be assigned a randomly generated password. Note that the users will be using their NT domain passwords for logging into QPR products, the random passwords are used to prevent the use of empty passwords.

If you select to assign a default password, then enter the password in the field below. In this case, all imported user have the same password and as such, the security level is quite low. Therefore it is advised that all the users change their passwords as soon as possible.

Click OK to apply the selection and close the dialog.
