Hi - We register our users within LFDS (v10) via Windows AD accounts. When we wish to grant these global users access to a specific repository, it becomes a bit confusing for me. Do we simply add a new user in the Admin Console by specifying New Windows Account User? I would have thought there was a selection to pick from the existing LFDS user pool, rather than search the full AD database - it seems like a disconnect.
Also, if we are adding "global" users from LFDS, must I first allocate "Repository Named User Licenses"? I was led to believe that parameter was only for licenses created in and restricted to that repository. When we licensed the repository, we kept that number very low - expecting that all users would be managed in LFDS and then granted access to the specific repositories required.
Thanks in advance for the info. I recognize this is a basic subject, but I can't seem to find a clear answer in the Admin Guide or other posts.
Thanks again, .... Steven.
