Enable local account management feature

Specify whether the agent manages local users and groups on the computer where the agent is installed.

When this group policy is Enabled:

  • The agent gets the local user and local group profiles from the zone, and updates the local password and local group files using the information defined in the zone.
  • You can view and manage local users and groups in Access Manager as described in the Administrator’s Guide for Linux and UNIX.

By default, this group policy is disabled (unless you upgraded from a authentication, privilege elevation, and audit and monitoring services release in which it was enabled), and the agent does not manage local users and groups.

This group policy modifies the adclient.local.account.manage setting in the agent configuration file.
