Step 4

Make sure to fill the user name and create a strong alpha numeric password. (For the best security practices always include one number and one letter with a mix of capital and lower cases.)

You may also check ‘User cannot change password’ to ensure the password is not changed.

Check ‘Password never expires’ to prevent being locked out of the server.
