*During the installation process — You can optionally set up both, one, or none of the AdminServer authorization options as shown in the following table:
This AdminServer security option ...
Requires you to ...
User (individual) Authorization option
*Select the Require a Username and Password checkbox
*Set up a valid individual user name and password at the operating system level for each individual to whom you are granting individual privileges
Group Authorization 1 option
*Select the Enable Group Checking checkbox
*Accept the initial default group provided, PSC Admin, which you can then use as a template for each unique group that you define

1 For details about the guidelines, naming conventions, and restrictions concerning the Group Authorization option, refer to the Installation online help topic "Establishing AdminServer Authorization Options."
