Why is a user assigned to the "Emergency Operator" group when logging on in WinCC RT?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

This phenomenon can occur when the group names in the User Administrators of Microsoft Windows and WinCC are not absolutely identical. The group names must be absolutely identical also with regard to uppercase/lowercase characters.

A user is created temporarily in the "Emergency Operator" group if the associated Windows group does not exist in the WinCC User Administrator.
