This configuration parameter specifies whether the agent manages local user and local group accounts on computers where the agent is installed.

When this parameter is set to true:

  • The agent gets the local user and local group profiles from the zone, and updates the local /etc/passwd and /etc/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 System Administrator’s Guide for Linux and UNIX.

The default value of this parameter is false, unless you upgraded from an Server Suite release in which local account management was enabled (in which case, it is set to true).

You can also set this configuration parameter using group policy.
