Support for storage system access control

SnapDrive provides support for storage system access control to separate server administrator and storage administrator functions, and to limit SnapDrive actions and operations that depend on the user. This feature is not supported with clustered Data ONTAP.

SnapDrive enables you to control storage system access by reading a file called AccessControl.xml that is created by the storage system administrator. The file is created in the /etc directory of the storage system root volume and lists the operations and storage resources that are allowed access by users who are assigned specific roles. The access control file associates access rights with specific storage resources. A tool called storacl.exe is used to edit the access control file.
