Creating a Local User on Windows 2000 server

  1. From the Windows Start menu select Programs | Administrative Tools | Computer Management. If this menu item does not exist, you are either not an administrator for the computer or the server is a domain controller and you need to create a domain user instead.
  2. From the Computer Management dialog, navigate to System Tools | Local Users and Groups | Users on the left panel; right click on Users and select New user from the popup menu.
  3. In the New User dialog, enter prtracker, PR-Tracker and Problem Tracking System for the User name, Full name and Description, respectively.
  4. Uncheck box User must change password at next login and then check box Password Never Expires.
  5. Click the Create button to create the user and then click Close button.
  6. Optional steps follow: double-click the prtracker username on the right panel.
  7. From the prtracker Properties dialog, select tab Member Of and click the Add button.
  8. From the Select Groups dialog double-click Administrators and click the OK button.

Note that optional steps 6, 7 and 8 are only recommended if you plan to use SQL Server as your database provider. Even if you do plan to use SQL Server as the database provider, these steps are optional if you choose to configure the server roles in SQL Server instead.
