Add an App Volumes administrator group who can log in to the App Volumes Manager and manage the users and groups.

You can create multiple administrator groups for a single Active Directory domain.


You cannot configure a single user an administrator, only a group can be added as an administrator.


Verify that you have already added the group to the Active Directory database.


  1. From the App Volumes Manager console, click Configuration > Administrators > Add Administrator.
  2. Search the domain for the group to which you want to provide administrator privileges and select All to search in all domains or select a specific domain from the drop-down menu.

    You can filter the search query by Contains, Begins, Ends, or Equals.

    1. (Optional) Check the Search all domains in the Active Directory forest box to search all domains in the entire Active Directory forest.

    A drop-down menu displays the groups matching your search query.

  3. Select the Active Directory group from the list.
  4. Click Create.


All users within the group are granted administrator privileges.

What to do next

After you have added the administrators, you can configure the Machine Managers and App Volumes storage. See Configuring a Machine Manager and Configure Storage For AppStacks and Writable Volumes.
