Using CV11 Admin - User Accounts
This document provides an introduction to the
RDM Server Administrator - Account section.
When you are viewing the Account section in the
RDM Server Administrator, there are two tabs,
User Accounts and User Access.
This is the list of the users who have access to your
system. The list shows their home database.
User Account Information
If you want to add new users to your system,
you must do this through the Collect! interface. This area
of the CV11 Admin Tool is for troubleshooting purposes.
This list does not have any entries in it when you first install
or upgrade Collect!. The user access is set already. If you
were to use ODBC to connect to the RDM Server, you
might want to add entries with certain restrictions to suit
The NEW button displays a form where you can set
access rights. This does not affect users who are working
within the Collect! interface.
User Access Settings
To see information about users who are currently signed in,
you can view the list from within Collect! by selecting System
from the top menu bar in Collect! and then selecting
Network and Environment, Active Users from the lists of
choices that are displayed.

Please be aware that after you change the Password,
you may have to update any maintenance utilities that use

Database utilities which use the default password for user admin:
Admin Privilege Level
This switch is enabled automatically for users created in
the Collect! interface with User Levels 1 to 10 and User
Level 99. You may want to work with this switch if you are
accessing the database via ODBC. Otherwise, there is no
need to change the Admin Privilege level for any accounts
that you see in the list.
Admin Privilege After Upgrade
Upon upgrading your Collect!, you may find that your
User Level 10 has not been set to "Admin privilege" in
the CV11 Server settings. This results in not being able to
create a new operator or a new import map. To remedy this,
