How to add root account

NethServer Version: 7.4.1708


If I want to give access to someone else to the Nethserver web interface, how can I create new user?


Members of the domain admins group should have full access. For more fine access you may have a look at


Also a couple of predefined group names have special powers. See the manual section at


Thank you!

Indeed the domain admins have full access.

But I will keep admin and administrator user disabled/locked because these are the most likely to be hacked.

Actually, lazy admins are the most likely source of runaway passwords. That, and overcomplicated password policies, forcing users to use yellow notes under keyboards :stuck_out_tongue:
