User Type

Local User

  • ALB-X in Stand-Alone or Manual H/A role will create Local Users only
  • By
    default there is a local user called “admin” that is a member of the
    admin group. For backwards compatibility this user can never be deleted
  • You may change the password of this user or delete it but you cannot delete the last local admin

Cluster User

  • ALB-X in Cluster role will create Cluster Users only
  • Cluster Users are synchronised across all of the ALB-X in the Cluster
  • Any change to a cluster user will change on all members of the cluster
  • If you are logged on as a cluster user then you will not be able to change roles from cluster to manual or stand-alone
Cluster and Local User

  • Any users created whilst in Stand-Alone or Manual role will be copied to the Cluster
  • If  the ALB-X subsequently leave the Cluster then only Local Users will remain
  • The last configured password for the user will be valid


Removing Users

  • Highlight an existing user
  • Click Remove
  • You will not be able to delete the user that is currently signed in
  • You will not be able to remove the last local user in the admin group
  • You will not be able to remove the last cluster user in the admin group
  • You will not be able to delete the admin user for backwards compatibility
  • If you remove an ALB-X from the cluster all users except local users will be deleted


Editing Users

  • Click Edit
  • You may change the user’s group membership by ticking the appropriate boxes and updating
  • You may also change the password of a user provided you have admin rights
