NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxaccounts  -  Graphical interface for account administration

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The Account Manager  application,  dxaccounts,  helps  you
       manage  user  accounts on your Tru64 UNIX system. It operates
 on both base  security  level  systems  and  enhanced
       security (C2) level systems.

       The  Account  Manager application lets you manage both the
       local and Network Information Service (NIS)  UNIX  account
       databases.  NIS  is used in order to centrally manage user
       accounts in a network environment. NIS lets  participating
       systems  share a common set of passwd and group files. NIS
       uses a client-server model.

       When  the  Advanced  Server  for  Tru64  UNIX  product  is
       installed,  the  Account Manager application allows you to
       perform domain user account management for PC users.

       To start Account Manager from the CDE  desktop:Choose  the
       Application  Manager from the CDE front panel.  Choose the
       System_Admin group.  Choose the DailyAdmin  group.   Click
       on the Account Manager icon.

       Online  help  is available for the dxaccounts application.
       To get help, click on any Help  button  or  use  the  Help
       pull-down menu.

       Account  Manager  replaces  the  XSysAdmin(8) and XIsso(8)
