The "cmd" command opens the Windows command line utility, which can be used to create a new network account. An administrator account has full access to the network, so you should add an administrator account only when you need an extra account to manage network resources. The added administrator is active immediately after you create it.
Click the Windows "Start" button on your server or a local desktop where you are logged in as an administrator. Type "cmd" (without quotes) in the Search text box and press "Enter." The command line opens.
Type the following command to create a new user:
dsadd -user administrators -samid username -pwd password
Replace "username" with the user name you want to use for the account. Replace "password" with the account's password.
Press "Enter" to execute the command. Type the current administrator password in the prompt to verify that you want to add the new account. Press "Enter," and the user account is created on the network.
