Set KMS Administrators
Upon startup, the only Windows 2000 account allowed to administrate KMS belongs to the person who installed KMS.
Tip For additional security, you can configure KMS to require multiple passwords to perform certain tasks. Adding and removing KMS administrators should be one of the most secure management operations in KMS. Therefore, it should require a larger number of administrator passwords than other tasks.
Warning Never remove a Windows 2000 account from your system without first making sure it is removed from the list of KMS administrators.
To add or delete KMS administrators:
Note You will have to re-type your password each time you try to perform a task or click a tab in the Key Manager Properties dialog box.
Note If you add someone to the list of KMS administrators, they will not be able to access the Advanced Security object in System Manager until you run Exchange Administration Delegation Wizard and grant that user Exchange administrator rights. At a minimum, an administrator will need these rights for the administrative group in which the Key Management server is located.
