SharePoint How to Make a User a Site Collection Administrator

In SharePoint you have to be a "site collection administrator" to be able to perform "superuser" tasks such as resetting a password for another user. This is a step above an "administrator". For Alentus customers, two "site collection administrators" are allowed per virtual server (site) installation. You can set this additional flag for the desired user id by following these menu selections:

"Site Settings" > "View information about site users" > Select the user from the list > "Edit User Information" > select "Site collection administrator" > "Save and Close"

To perform this operation you must be logged in as the "other" site collection administrator.
