Description

Name

Name of the security group that you want to create.

After you enter the name of the security group, click Check to verify that the name of the authentication group and the name that you have specified for the security group are the same. Authentication group can be an OS group or a LDAP/Authentication Domain group.

Veritas Operations Manager displays an icon that indicates that the verification of the name of the security group is in progress. If the authentication group name and the security group name are the same, Veritas Operations Manager displays a green icon. If the authentication group name and the security group name are different, you can view a red icon.

Note:

You must ensure that the name of the authentication group and the security group are the same.

Name of the security group for NT domain must include the domain name on which the group is configured, and the group name. The security group name must be entered in the domain name\groupname format.

Example: Machinename\Administrator

Domain

Name of the authentication domain that you want to associate with the security group.

You can choose the domain names from the drop-down list. The drop-down list contains all the authentication domains that are in the enabled state.

Role

Choose any of the following roles that you want to associate with the security group:

  • Admin

  • Operator

  • Guest

Allow access to storage views and operations

Select this check box if you want to provide the role that you create with the privileges to access the views and reports and perform the operations that are related to out-of-band storage management.

If you have not selected this check box, the administrators or operators with the role that you create can only administer the servers. They cannot access the views and reports and perform the operations that are related to out-of-band storage management from the servers that they administer.

Scope

Choose any of the following options to provide scope to the roles that you have specified:

  • Entire Domain

  • Selected Business Entities

If you choose the scope as Selected Business Entities, the panel displays all the business entities present in Veritas Operations Manager. To limit the scope of the role to one or more specific business entities, you must associate them with the security group. Check the check box on the left side of each of the business entities to associate them with the security group that you create.

Note:

You cannot provide any scope to the Guest role. When you select the Guest role, the panel does not display the Scope options.
