Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP11 Administrator's Guide

Editing Group Attributes

ProcedureTo edit a group entry (LDAP services only)

  1. Access the Administration Server and choose the Users and Groups tab.

  2. Click Manage Groups.

  3. Locate the group you want to edit, and type the desired changes.

    For more information regarding how to find specific entries, refer to the concepts outlined in Finding Group Entries.

    Note –

    You can change the Administration Server user from root to another user on the operating system to enable multiple users (belonging to the group) to edit/manage the configuration files. However,while on UNIX/Linux platforms, the installer can give “rw” permissions to a group for the configuration files, but on Windows platforms, the user must belong to the “Administrators” group.

    For more information about editing group attributes, see the Manage Groups page in the online help.

    Note –

    It is possible that you will want to change an attribute value that is not displayed by the group edit form. In this situation, use the Directory Server ldapmodify command line utility, if available.
