    If you mean to add a sub-domain administrator in the Policy Manager Console, then proceed as follows:

    -Open your Console as full admin

    -Go to Tools>>Users

    -Select "Add"  to  add from there a user with read-only access rightssubdomain admin.PNG

  • Thank you for your help.


    The problem is that, this guy is our IT Technician and he does not have administrative privilege to the servers or the server where the console is installed.


    Therefore we want that he would be able to deploy softwares to the clients with the Fsecure consolse.

    Is there any way we can have a solution for this issue?

    The created user(s) in the console shouldn't need administrative rights. Just being able to launch the console and enter their personal credentials.

    You can even install a PM console simply on a dedicated machine for this technician. 


    For the installation from the PM console, that requires full access to a domain within the console.

    Alternatively you can provide exported installation packages to this person to deploy.

  • HellO Ben,


    According to my IT guys they are unable to create a non-administrator domain user as a fsecure console user to be able to deply or uninstall softwares to the client machines.
    So you mean this can be done as far as i was able to understand you.


    The other alternative installing the Console to the client machine (IT Technician) how can that be done? How can this console connect with the server console?

    Sorry for being unclear. The IT technician still needs to have at least administrator rights on the target machine as it is needed for the installation and uninstallation of our products.


    Concerning the remote policy manager, you can install the Policy Manager console on a separate machine by running the installer and selecting only that component.

    Please refer to this thread for more information.

    I wonder if the full admin rights requirements could be lessened somewhat, with the login script or AD Group Policy methods being used for centrally initiated endpoint protection installation, using either an exported pre-configured .MSI package or the "ilauncher" utility program with a .JAR file?


    (I consider the direct push, admin$ share, remote registry based, traditional centralized install method somehat obsolete, because Microsoft has done a lot, to armour Vista and newer Windows workstation editions against such remote access by default.)

  • Thanks for the info Ben, my other question is that the client console we installed was able to work on Internet Explorer 9 so when he updated to IE11 it wont work.

    Is there any reason why it is not working with IE11? but Chrome works fine?

    Good afternoon!


    The administrative manual from Policy Manager in the page 9 and 10 show the requirements for Policy Manager Installation.


    For Policy Manager Server you will need (network requirements):

    Network: 100 Mbit network.

    • Firefox 3.6 or newer
    • Internet Explorer 7 or newer


    For Policy Manager Console you will need (network requirements):

    Network: 100 Mbit network


    Best Regards,
