I want to remove root access from our admins and move to a delegated permissions model on our NetApp filers. I can see how to do this but want to know of a way on implementing this on multiple filers. 13 currently and soon to be many more.
What have people used in the past and would to work well?
Thanks in advance

You can use the Ontap RBAC Management of DFM to create users, roles and groups with permissions you wish to give.
Also the roles and groups created in one filer can be pused to single or set of filers.
You can also manage their passwords using the password management of DFM.
Hope this is what you are looking for.

Also, from Ops Mgr you can issue commands to all filers that are under control. This could be a nice way to roll out the same user creation on each system or disabling certain features (telnet for instance) across all systems too.

Is this the way you mean?
The following steps are required to configure either multiple storage systems or vFiler units, or both, using Operations Manager. You must have enabled SNMP on the storage systems and DataFabric Manager must have already discovered them.

Thats the config management that I mentioned above to Chris...
I can't find the link to the section of the doc in the Admin guide but it is detailed in the online help guide
