Managing Users on FERMI-FMPDB server

(See attached screenshots at bottom of this wiki page)

1. Log into the FERMI-FMPDB server and open "Computer Management".

2. Expand "Local Users and Groups", then find the "Filemaker FESS" group.

3. Double-click the group to open properties, then click add and type the user's login ID.
