Managing SVMs

Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) administrators can administer SVMs and its resources, such as volumes, protocols, and services, depending on the capabilities assigned by the cluster administrator. SVM administrators cannot create, modify, or delete SVMs.

Note: SVM administrators cannot log in to System Manager.
SVM administrators might have all or some of the following administration capabilities:
  • Data access protocol configuration

    Configure data access protocols, such as NFS, CIFS, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel (FC) protocol (Fibre Channel over Ethernet included)

  • Services configuration

    Configure services, such as LDAP, NIS, and DNS

  • Storage management

    Manage volumes, quotas, qtrees, and files

  • LUN management

    Manage LUNs in a SAN environment

  • Snapshot copy management

    Manage Snapshot copies of the volumes

  • Monitoring SVM

    Monitor jobs, network connection, network interface, and SVM health
