How to prevent a Kvault admin from accessing the archives content?

Created: 29 Aug 2006 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 3 comments


I would like to prevent the Kvault administrators from modifying the access permissions on the archives (and so to give themself access to anybody's archive content)
The administrators should still be able to start the Vault admin console, check the config, restart tasks and services,...

Is it possible?
Any idea how to do this?

Thanks in advance for your help

I believe that if they can run the admin console then they're in. I've never heard of a way to granularize (is that a word??) what can be done once you're in.

I'm interested in this as well. I'm new to the product, but one of the things that is annoying is that there is only one account that can be used for accessing the Administration Console.

As such, I can set auditing as high as I want (which I like), but I'm just auditing the one accounts access - not who is using the account. There's no native way to distinguish what changes individual administrators are making inside of the application since they have to share the service account.

I don't think there's a way to address this in 6.0. The admin console isn't role based. I heard this will be a feature of 7.0 that's due out in a couple of months tho.
