The xDMS Administrator enables you to define users who have the necessary privileges to access the xDMS Console to create and schedule jobs, and to delegate the ability to create authenticated users. Figure 7 shows the xDMS Administrator.

Being able to define users who can use the xDMS Administrator and the xDMS Console is a nice way to give local administrators certain privileges without just handing out the xDMS superuser password. As mentioned previously, these local administrators can subsequently use the xDMS Console icon on these remote systems to retrieve updates and other packages from an xDMS server in the future.
