Why am I unable to create additional users in Splunk Light?

I've been setting up Splunk Light and I'm unable to create new users. When I go to system > manage accounts under the admin account, I don't get an option to create additional accounts (see attached screenshot).

Hi mdhtdm24,

could it be that you have Splunk light free instead Splunk light?

Splunk light free is limited to one user, see docs for more details http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkLight/latest/GettingStarted/AboutSplunkLightaccounts
or this link http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkLight/latest/GettingStarted/AboutSplunkLight#Splunk_Light...

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

in Splunk Light, you can have one admin account, and 5 user accounts. do you already have 5 users?

for reference, the instructions for setting up the accounts are here:

Ah yes, it wasn't clear when I downloaded it that there was a difference, but I do indeed have the free version. Thanks for the clarification.
