Settings for local accounts

If you are viewing a local account for a Windows, UNIX, or Juniper system, you can also select or deselect Use proxy account depending on whether you want to use the proxy account defined for the system. In most cases, you select this option for an account under the following conditions:

  • If the target system type is UNIX or Juniper and the root account is not allowed to open secure shell sessions, select this option to use the proxy account defined for the system to start secure shell sessions on the target system.
  • If the target system type is Windows and you are using Windows Remote Management to manage passwords, select this option to use the proxy account defined for the system to validate and manage account passwords on the target system.

If you are viewing an account for a generic SSH device, you can edit the account description. You cannot manage account passwords, use a proxy account, or change the account name.
