Administrator Accounts
When you log in to the administration console, the tasks you are authorized to perform display on the Navigation pane. These tasks are based on the rights assigned to the administrator role.
Two types of administrator accounts can be created to manage ZCS:
*
Global Administrators have full privileges to manage servers, global settings, domains, and accounts as well as create other administrators. One global administrator account is created when the software is installed. Additional global administrator accounts can be created. You can perform administration tasks from the administration console or the command line.
*
Delegated Administrators are granted customized administrator roles by the global administrator to manage different tasks from the administration console. See Delegated Administration.
Change Administrator Passwords
The first global administrator password is created at installation. You can change the password at any time.
*
From the admin console Accounts, select the admin account and change the password.
*
From the CLI, type zmprov sp adminname@domain.com password
