4. Performing Administration Tasks

The main purpose of the admin mode is to provide an easy way for an adminstrator to assign virtual environments (VEs) hosted on compute nodes to end users from an identity provider, e.g., LDAP database. If such an identity provider is not available, users can be created locally on the controller node (see Managing Users Locally).

After having been assigned a VE, an end user can log in to Virtuozzo PowerPanel with the username and password set for the VE and manage it in the user mode.
