7.1 Creating Collaborative Storage Objects in Active Directory

For Novell Storage Manager to manage collaborative storage, it must have the following Group or User objects located in an organizational unit in Active Directory:

  • -MEMBER-


  • -GROUP-

These objects are needed for assigning rights to the collaborative storage template folders (that you will create later) for the group members, the manager, and the group itself.

IMPORTANT:You only need to create these objects in one organizational unit.

  1. At a Windows workstation, click Start > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. Right-click an organizational unit and select New > Group.

  3. Give the Group object the name -MEMBER- and leave the Group Scope setting as Global and the Group Type setting as Security.

  4. Repeat Step 2 to create a -MANAGER- group and a -GROUP- group.

    These three objects are used to automatically set rights for the collaborative storage. Make sure you name the objects exactly as indicated. The object names can either be uppercase or lowercase.
