Type "user", type "admin"

    Hi :)
    IIRC, the normal reseller can only see his own clients, not the clients of other resellers.
    But we need some users with permission to edit every client.
    So I thought I create a reseller (or client, I tried both) and then change the type from "user" to "admin" via web interface.
    In your demo, it works like a charm; in my setup, I get the following message:

    A user that belongs to a client can not be set to type: admin

    They are newly created test users and belong to nobody.

    I'm running a fresh install ISPConfig on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. (demo3.ispconfig.org/ is 3.0.5, that's the only difference I've found).

    Can you please give me a hint where I can find a solution and what this message means?

    This means that neither clients nor resellers can be of type admin. The online demo is not a real ispconfig installation, so it behaves differently. If you need a sub admin, then add it under system > cp users.
