Operator and Selected Business Entities
Veritas Operations Manager lets you provide the role that you create with the privilege to access the views and reports and perform the operations that are related to out-of-band storage management. To provide the storage administration privileges, you can use the Allow access to storage views and operations check box on the New Security Group wizard panel.
If you do not select the Allow access to storage views and operations check box, the administrators or the 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.
The privilege to access the storage views and operations is global in nature. You cannot provide any scope to this privilege. However, you can provide the scope to the role that has the privilege to access the storage views and operations. For example, if you have provided the privilege to access the storage views and operations to the Admin role with the right to administer the business entity BEhosts_example that is based on hosts, the administrators with this role can delve in to the storage views from the hosts that are part of BEhosts_example.
In Veritas Operations Manager, the Dynamic Multipathing (DMP) maintenance operations and the discovery of information on the arrays are directly dependent on the privilege to access the storage views and operations that you have provided to a predefined role.
