So far I never had much to do with server administration, so this question might be very basic to some people.
I have to manage a Windows Server 2012 R2. There are around 8 users who use it. They all have a local computer and connect to it via RDP and work on the server. If i type in cmd
there are only the standard users (Administrator, Guest and 1 more costum), but none of the 8 "real" users. If i create a new user with
net user newuser newpw /add
this user appears in the "net users"-command, but has a different domainname than the 8 real users. For example newusers fullname is "ITS/newuser", while all the "real" users are "COMPANY/username". The Server is not member of an Active Directory Network.
Furthermore when I log in as Admin and use the Computermanagement-Tool, i canot find the 8 real users listed anywhere. The 8 real users all have a folder in C:\Users\username with the typical subfolders like Desktop, Downloads, Documents, etc.
I want to add a new user, and put them into the same domain as the 8 existing users. So far, I have no idea how to do this.
Of course i googled a lot, but every solution I found was about managing users in an Active Directory Network and in my case there is no Active Directory.
Can someone explain in general what exactly is going on and how this server works? To be honest I do not even understand the structure about how users are managed on this server and I am desperate for any information.
If you want more information or even screenshots, just ask for them. I am very glad if someone can help me
