This topic describes how to create user accounts for Forefront TMG servers in a workgroup. Forefront TMG uses mirror accounts to manage the different servers because you cannot define a shared account outside a domain. You need to define a mirror administrator account on all servers, by creating a user with the same name and password that belongs to the local Administrators group of each server.
|When creating user accounts you should not specify a domain or computer name prefix.|
To create a user account with administrator privileges
In Computer Management on the Forefront TMG server, click Local Users and Groups, right-click Users, and then select New User.
In New User, type a name for the user and enter a password, and click Create. Then click Close.
In Groups, right-click the Administrators group, and then select Add to Group.
Click Add, and enter the name of the user you created.
Click Check Names, and then click OK.
