You can access the storage system from the console or through a Telnet session, a Remote Shell connection,
a secure shell client application.
Methods for accessing a storage system
To access the storage system, you only need network connectivity to the storage system and authentication privileges, and no licenses are required. To store and retrieve data on the storage system, you must have an NFS or a CIFS license installed.
Secure protocols and storage system access
Using secure protocols improves the security of your storage system by making it very difficult for someone to intercept a storage system administrator's password over the network, because the password and all administrative communication are encrypted.
Understanding OnCommand System Manager System Manager is a graphical management interface that enables you to manage storage systems and storage objects (such as disks, volumes, and aggregates) and perform common management tasks related to storage systems from a Web browser.
Methods for controlling storage system access
Data ONTAP enables you to control how administrators can access the storage system. By limiting how, and from where, administrators can log on, you can increase the security of your storage system.
