System Administrator Guide for VSP E990 and VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900

Part Number

You can change user permissions by changing membership in the user group. A user can belong to multiple user groups.

For example, if you want to change the role of the user who manages security to the performance management role, add this user to the Storage Administrator (Performance Management) role group and then remove the user from the Security Administrator (View & Modify) role group.

  • You must have the Security Administrator (View & Modify) role to perform this task.
  • The user whose permissions you want to change must belong to at least one user group.
  • A user account can belong to up to 8 user groups.
  • A user group can contain a maximum of 20 user accounts, including the built-in user accounts.
