Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Guide

ProcedureTo find the specific user information

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

  2. Click Manage Users.

  3. Select a directory service from the Select Directory Service drop-down list and click Select.

    For directory services of type Key File or Digest File, a list of users is displayed. For directory services of type LDAP Server, search fields are displayed.

  4. Find user information.

    For Key File and Digest File, click the link for the user to display the edit form and make changes. For detailed information about the edit form, see the online help.

    For LDAP Server, do the following:

    1. In the Find user field, enter some descriptive value for the entry that you want to edit. You can enter any of the following in the search field:

      • A name: Enter a full name or a partial name. All entries that equally match the search string will be returned. If no such entries are found, all entries that contain the search string will be found. If no such entries are found, any entries that sounds like the search string are found.

        • A user ID:

          • A telephone number: If you enter only a partial number, any entries that have telephone numbers ending in the search number will be returned.

          • An email address: Any search string containing an at (@) symbol is assumed to be an email address. If an exact match cannot be found, then a search is performed to find all email addresses that begin with the search string.

          • An asterisk (*) to see all of the entries currently in your directory. You can achieve the same effect by simply leaving the field blank.

          • Any LDAP search filter: Any string that contains an equal sign (=) is considered a search filter.

            As an alternative, use the drop-down menus in the “Find all users whose” field to narrow the results of your search.

    2. In the Look within field, select the organizational unit under which you want to search for entries.

      The default is the directory’s root point (or top most entry).

    3. In the Format field, choose either On-Screen or Printer.

    4. Click Find.

      All users in the selected organizational unit are displayed.

    5. In the resulting table, click the entry you want to edit.

      The user edit form is displayed. Edit the information as described in the online help.

    6. Click Save Changes.

      The changes are made immediately.
