Creating and Using User Templates in Serv-U  -  KB Article #1594

Related Articles --

One of the most useful user and group creation features of Serv-U are the User Template and Group Template tools. Available from the Users / Global Users menus and the Groups / Global Groups menus, the User and Group Templates allow administrators to create a standard template for configuration options that applies to all new users and groups created. When standard configurations such as Directory Access rules or various Limits and Settings need to be applied to a large number of users who will be configured at one time, simply update the template and begin adding users. The steps below describe an example of the use of user templates:

  • Select the User Template button from the Domain | Users menu

  • Make any changes to the template necessary, such as setting the Home Directory to C:\%USER%

  • Save the changes
  • Add a new user account, noticing that template has applied to the new account
