Define a External system to place the files where emer_ux is looking for it.
Then associate services to that external system.
Finally, create a new service (under an MBR) of that account type
and then from the main window, select, External, Batch accounts.

Its designed to create a Livginston Compatable users file. You can
out that section of the perl script if you don't want it to.

We do not officially support the Unix exports, we only make examples
and the software itself together. Docs are including in the emer_ux
archvie for emer_ux itself.
