The following is tip #7 from "Managing Lotus Notes and Domino users and groups -- 10 tips in 10 minutes," excerpted from Chapter 15 of the book Lotus Notes and Domino 6 System Administrator Exam Cram 2, published by Sams Publishing.
User management includes adding and deleting users, recertifying user IDs and moving users in the domain. The Administrator client is used for user management.
The Person document contains all of the information related to the user that determines access and rights related to how the user interacts with the domain. When changes such as the name or title are made to the user's information, the changes are recorded in the Person document. To edit the Person document, follow these steps:
- Launch the Domino Administrator and select the People & Groups tab.
- Click People and choose the user to be modified, and then select Edit Person.
- Make the changes desired to the Person document and select Save & Close to save the changes.
