Why can I log into my Console Port Server through Terminal, Telnet or SSH as root and have Administrator access, but when logged through the web interface I have Reqular User access?

"Your Group Permissions file needs to be edited. The procedure to fix this is listed below.

You must log in as root through Terminal, Telnet, or SSH to perform this procedure:

a) Connect to your Console Port Server as root.

b) Type “cd /etc/” to browse to the etc directory.

c) Type “vi group” to open the group permissions file with vi text editor. (If you are not familiar with using the vi text editor, there are a number of websites that offer help. Please consult them first before continuing.)

d) Add the line “admin::104:root” to the end of the file and save it.

e) Issue the ""runconf"" command to activate the changes.

f) Issue the ""saveconf"" command to save your configuration.

If you still cannot connect to the Console Port Server with your Administrator account, please contact APC at 1-800-800-4272. "
