Importing Directory Service Users

  1. Find your directory service (DS) user. From the Admin page, you can search for your DS group from the Accounts page or from the Directories page:
    • Search by name: Click Accounts > Users > Search. Type the username or at least two characters of the user name and click Search. A list of users that match the characters appears.
    • Select from a list: Click Directories then click Edit for the corresponding directory. Go to the Users tab.
    If the number of records exceeds the limit for displaying a list in Shares, Shares displays the following message: "This directory has too many users to show all at once." Enter a minimum of two characters in the search box to search for your user by name.
  2. Click Edit to import the user and edit the user's profile.
    For details on how to edit a user's profile, see Configure DS Users and Groups.
Note: A new user may only log in if the number of users active in the last hour is less than the max number of users allowed by your license.
