User names must be unique on the server.


User names are case-insensitive, cannot include spaces, and the following characters

are not permitted: ~ # % * \ ; / : & ? . ' , " ` $ < + >

You can create additional administrators by assigning the Administrator role to other

users in Kofax Administration Console.
