I am trying to add a new user to EMC (other than root) in version 8. I can add the user and add them to the authorization group, but cannot add/set a password. I am set to OS authentication. I'm positive I'm overlooking something stupid

Hello,

If OS Authentication is set the underlying OS needs to have an account and password set up to authentication the user. 

If linux use the command: "passwd <user>" and you'll be prompted to enter password credentials. 

Replace "<user>" with the username you've configured.

NetSight relies on the underlying OS to authenticate the user, so there is no password database.

Thanks
-Ryan

Ryan, that's what I thought, and sure enough, that did the trick! Thank you!
