3.4 Directory Services

3.4.1 Active Directory Trustees

The Active Directory users can now access the data on DST volumes via CIFS. To manage the rights of the Active Directory trustees on the DST volumes, you can use OES File Access Rights Management (NFARM) utility or rights utility. For more information, see Managing the Trustee Rights in the NSS File System and rights in the OES 2015 SP1: NSS File System Administration Guide for Linux.

3.4.2 eDirectory 8.8 SP8 Trustees

Users whose User objects are defined in eDirectory 8.8 SP8 also have access to data. For information about configuring eDirectory and users, see the NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 SP8 Administration Guide.

IMPORTANT:All users of data on the shadow volume pair must be eDirectory users. The server’s root user is the only local user who should access data without authenticating in eDirectory.

eDirectory users who access files via native Linux file access protocols must be enabled for Linux with Linux User Management (LUM), that is, they are LUM-enabled. For information, see Section 3.10, Linux User Management.
