My user account does not belong with Active Directory; can I add my computer with it so it can belong to Active Directory? If so, can I log on with my local user account? Please help me on managing user account in active Directory. Thanks.

Managing User Account in Active Directory

Active directory is a very major part of administration of network which involves management of users, computers and even groups. Therefore being a management tool it ensures only those with proper authentication are allowed to log in to a system and the network resources are available to only authorized users.

Therefore playing a major role in security. The answer is that you may not be able to log in with your local user before you install Active directory in your computer network and also choose which administration strategy/group scope suits your scenario.

Hai Ellen,

To add new user to active domain directory:

 Adding user in active directory:

Yes it is possible to add a user account to an active domain directory we need to firstly consider:

  • Permissions and group Memberships which have to be manually edited by admin.
  • Whether user will use different name to logon on to computers running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT.

 

Procedure:

1. Open Active directories and computers. Go to start click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. Select which container you want user to be in. For example click the Users Container, right click, click user, click new, an object window will appear.

3. Fill in the form with your full user name and a logon name.

4. On the next window, you give user a password. Here you also set properties to whether user can change password or not, and other password properties.

5. Click next and user account is ready.

 

Note: To add an already existing account to the active domain directory:

1. Open Active directories and computers. Go to start click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. Open container where user is located.

3. Right click and select properties.

4. A properties table appears, here click on Member of.

5. Type in Domain if user is to have admin rights.

User account is now set.
