Before you use SnapDrive for UNIX, you must understand its security features and learn how to access them.
What the Security features are
SnapDrive for UNIX provides certain features that allow you to work with it more securely. These features give you more control over which users can perform operations on a storage system and from which host.
Login information for storage systems
A user name or password allows SnapDrive for UNIX to access each storage system. It also provides security because, in addition to being logged in as root, the person running SnapDrive for UNIX must supply the correct user name or password when prompted for it. If a login is compromised, you can delete it and set a new user login.
Setting up HTTP
You can configure SnapDrive for UNIX to use HTTP for your host platform.
