Excluding Laptop Administrators as Client Owners

By default, when a laptop administrator installs and registers the laptop package on a laptop client, the administrator is automatically added as a client owner for the laptop client and has complete access to the user's data on the laptop.

To prevent access to user's data, you can exclude the administrators as client owners before installing the laptop package.


To exclude the laptop administrators as client owners:

  • Create a CommCell user group called Laptop Admins and add the administrator to the user group.

    For information on creating user groups, see Creating a User Group.


The laptop administrator is no longer assigned as client owner for new installations of laptop package. However, the administrator will still remain as client owner on already registered laptop clients. To remove client ownership, you must manually remove the administrator from the client owner list. If the administrator is part of a user group that is added to the Laptop Admins group, when removed from the user group, the administrator is automatically added as a client owner on the registered laptop clients.
