Use the Domain Account Manager to create and destroy a local domain, export and import a local domain, add and remove network domains, import a Lookout account, and manage domain users and groups. Select Tools»Security»Domain Account Manager to display the Domain Account Manager.
The Domain Account Manager uses the NI Publish-Subscribe Protocol (NI-PSP) networking protocol to detect all network domains. Built-in data encryption and data integration secure the authentication protocol. The Domain Account Manager requires two background services that run on Windows outside of any National Instruments applications: National Instruments PSP Server Locator, which enables the Domain Account Manager to detect network domains, and the National Instruments Domain Service, which enables the Domain Account Manager to manage the local domain. In the Windows XP Task Manager, these services appear as lkads.exe and nidmsrv.exe. These services run automatically on Windows XP. If you need to interact with these services, you can use the Services utility, available by selecting Start»Control Panel»Administrative Tools»Services.
|Caution Someone who has the Administrator password or whose account is a member of the Administrators group can create, edit, or delete user accounts. Someone with access to the host machine can change domain account data, gain unauthorized access to a domain, or take over the domain.|
