Using the local accounts tool on the core server

Since your core server is a node on your network and has local accounts, you can use the local accounts tool to perform administrative tasks on the server, as well as the console itself. You can add Ivanti users to the console by creating local users and adding them to the Windows LANDESK Management Suite or LANDESK Administrators group. This lets you perform administrative tasks from the console, without having to use the native local accounts management system, such as Computer Management on Windows.

If you prefer, you can still use the native local accounts management system to manage local accounts. You can access the devices directly, remote control the machines from the console, or use a third-party tool to access the devices and perform the administrative tasks.

For more information on using the console to perform local accounts management, see Role-based administration overview.
