After the installation of the Server is complete, you should install the Client (Developer) on at least one computer and create a Login Profile that connects to the server.
Tip: During the Server installation, you can also choose to install a Client shortcut on the server that you can use to start the Developer. Then you can access the Administration menu to add additional authors and perform other administrative operations.
When the Server component is installed, the person performing the installation must choose to configure the Library using Windows or Standard authentication. Depending on the authentication method selected, a default author is automatically added into the Library. This allows one author to install the Client (Developer) on a local computer, create a Login Profile that connects to the Library, and add additional authors. The authentication method determines how the default author is created. For example, if Windows authentication was selected during the installation, the Windows login of the person installing the software is automatically added as the default author with administrative privileges. If Standard authentication was selected during the installation, a default author of admin is automatically added with administrative privileges. The password for the admin author is admin. You should use this author name and password to create a Login Profile and log into the Developer for the first time. It is also highly recommended that you immediately change the password for the admin author.
Regardless of whether you are using Standard or Windows authentication (as defined when the Server component is installed), you must identify each author that will access the Developer before any author can create a Login Profile and log in to the Library.
If the server is configured for Windows authentication, you will need to know the Windows login (user name) for each person that will access the Developer; however, you will not need to know their password. The user's Windows password is used to authenticate the user login.
If the server is configured for Standard authentication, you will define each author's user name and password and then distribute this information to each author so they can create a Login Profile using the same login credentials. It is highly recommended that each author change their password.
As the administrator you can add, edit, or delete authors, assign an author Administrator privileges, as well as manage Library permissions for an author or groups of authors.
Note about Permissions: Any new author that you add has complete access to all folders in the Library, unless you explicitly configure additional security permissions.
