Fix

The EAAdminConfig utility is located in the directory to which the Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) server component was installed. This utility can be used to add or remove a user or group to the Built-in Admin (DRA 6.x versions) or DRA Admins (DRA 7.x and later versions) Assistant Admin group from the command prompt.   

To add a user account to the Built-in Admin/DRA Admins Assistant Admin group, perform the following steps on the Primary DRA server computer:

  1. From the command prompt, change directory to the installation directory (i.e. c:\Program Files\NetIQ\DRA) 
  2. Enter the command:
    EAAdminConfig /add domain_name\userid.
  3. Hit the Enter key.

The MCS OnePoint Administration Server service (for DRA 6.x versions)/NetIQ Administration Service (for DRA 7.x and later versions) must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
