    Hi Iftissen,

    Where were these other users created? On another cluster? Inside the Sandbox VM? If they were created on another cluster then the Sandbox knows nothing of them and you cannot connect using them.



    Thank you tedr,
    but how I can add user to the Sandbox ? I tested to create user from linux (Centos of the sandbox) but it doesn’t work!! and I don’t why? It can this works if I create a User (super user for exemple) on linux of the VM (sandbox)?

    Best regard.


    Hi iftissen,
    The sandbox does not support multiple logins at the moment. It only uses the sandbox user. It is possible that feature will be included in future releases.



    Thank you Robert
