A host that runs on Solaris, Linux, Windows, AIX, or HP-UX can be designated as a secondary discovery host.

Hosts that run on the same operating system must be designated as the primary and the secondary discovery hosts. However, you can choose a host that runs on Solaris and a host that runs on Linux as a primary and the secondary discovery host pair if the location of the NaviSecCLI is the same for these two types of hosts.

Storage Array Name/IP

Scope

Specifies the type of the user account on the storage system that you want to log on. The available options are:

  • Global: Choose this option if your account is effective throughout the domain. When the administrator creates a global account, the software copies the definition of this account to the domain directory, which makes it accessible on all storage systems in the domain.

  • Local: Choose this option if your account is effective only on the storage systems for which the administrator creates the account. Using the local account, you can log on to only those storage systems on which you have a local account.

  • LDAP: LDAP maps the user name and the password entries to an external LDAP or Active Directory server for authentication. The user name and the password pairs whose roles are not mapped to the external directory are denied access.

    For authentication within the local security directory, specify global or local scope.
