    Log out of the Avalanche Console, then log in as one of the LDAP users. This user will not have ANY rights when they first log on.

    Log off the console again, then log on as an administrator again, then either give the user the rights you want them to have, or create a group and set the permissions for the group. You will also need togive the User Group a home, and select the users that belong to the group. You will also need to go to the Site\Group Location Properties and apply the group or user to that location.

    When an LDAP User first logs onto the Avalanche Server, they will need to inform an Administrator, for their rights to be set. This step will be needed for all LDAP users.
