Authorization Manager can be run as a stand-alone console or as a snap-in added to a Microsoft Management Console (MMC).
Administrators is the minimum group membership required to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.
|To start Authorization Manager|
Click Start, type azman.msc in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If the User Account Control dialog box appears, provide the requested permission or credentials.
- Authorization Manager opens without a default
authorization store. To use Authorization Manager, you need to
create or open an authorization store.
- You can configure your own MMC that includes
Authorization Manager as part of that console. For more
information, refer to "Additional references" in this topic.
- Authorization Manager opens with the same
configuration as at the time you closed the console.
- Depending on the configuration of your
computer, the User Account Control dialog box may or may not
appear. It will not appear if you are logged in with the built-in
Administrator account (the local Administrator account is disabled
by default in this version of Windows).
- By default, members of the local
Administrators group have sufficient rights and privileges
to complete this task. In your environment, security may be managed
so that non-administrators have additional rights.
- If User Account Control is enabled, it can be
configured to allow non-administrators to enter the credentials of
an administrator to complete administrative tasks without being a
member of the Administrators group.
