Before you can use Authorization Manager to control access to resources, you must create an authorization store.

Administrators is the minimum group membership required to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.

To create an authorization store
  1. Open Authorization Manager.

  2. If necessary, switch to developer mode by changing the Authorization Manager options.

  3. In the console tree, right-click Authorization Manager, and then click New Authorization Store.

  4. In the New Authorization Store dialog box, click Active Directory, XML file, or Microsoft SQL.

  5. In Store name, type the authorization store name or click Locations to find the authorization store. You cannot use Locations to browse for a computer running Microsoft SQL Server. You must know the location you want to use to create a store in SQL Server.

  6. (Optional) In Description, type a description for the new authorization store.

  7. Click OK.
