User accounts

System Administrator Guide for Virtual Storage Platform E Series

Part Number

When adding a new user, you need to add it to a user group with desired permissions. You can use one of the built-in user group or a custom user group.

For more information about roles, permissions, and user groups, see Roles and permissions.

You will need to use the local administrator account created during the initial setup step, or create administrator accounts using the procedures described in this chapter as needed to access the storage system temporarily when the management software is not available.

  • Create more than one user account in case the system administrator is not available when the management software becomes unavailable, or when someone else needs to access the system. This is also helpful if multiple users need to access Device Manager - Storage Navigator to use storage features that are not available in the management software.
  • Create user accounts that do not have the "Support Personnel (Vendor Only)" role to prevent unauthorized access to the functions available to service representatives. Users that have the "Support Personnel (Vendor Only)" role can perform the same operations as service representatives.
