View Full Version : Problems making changes in Workgroup manager

Aloha from Hawaii,

I just took over computer support for a local school. They have a Mac 10.5.6 server that I log in as admin. Unfortunately, when I go to Workgroup Manager. I can't add or change any accounts. Obviously, the admin user doesn't have permission to make these changes. How do I give admin the right permission to work in workgroup manager? The guy that set this up is now with a different company, and he is nearly impossible to contact.

You need to authenticate as the Directory Administrator, different to Server Administrator.

It defaults to diradmin so try that with your admin password. If you've lost it then I think you may have to destroy your Directory Master and recreate it so hope you can get it back
