    2. In the Login - New dialog box, click Search.
    3. In the Select User or Group dialog box, select the valid Active Directory user that you plan to use to install JMP Server.
    4. In the Login - New dialog box, under Select a Page, choose Server Roles and select the sysadmin check box.
    5. Click OK to close the Login-New dialog box.
  4. Grant permissions to the Windows user account.
    1. In the left pane, click Databases.
    2. Select the database you created for your JMP Server instance, click Security, and then click Users
    3. In the Users pane, right-click your Windows user login, and select Properties from the contextual menu.
