Specifying a Windows domain account name

When you want to specify a Windows domain account in the access control list (ACL), be sure to use two backslashes between the domain and the user name as shown in the following example. This operation is performed on the command line of the pconfig utility.


The pconfig utility will not accept the Windows domain notation without the backslashes.
