Access to Open Files in Computer Management

Is there a solution for accessing the "Open Files" of a Netapp-Filer in Computer Mangement for our support team other than adding the users to one of the filers administrative groups?

Re: Access to Open Files in Computer Management

Hi,

Yes. To set this up, the user should be added to the BUILTIN\Aministrators or "BUILTIN\Power Users" group.
Example:
cifs users-and-groups local-groups add-members -vserver <vserver_name> -group-name BUILTIN\Administrators -member-names <domainuser>
or
cifs users-and-groups local-groups add-members -vserver <vserver_name> -group-name "BUILTIN\Power Users" -member-names <domainuser>

Re: Access to Open Files in Computer Management

Hello,

the question was, is there another solution than use one of these builtin-groups? We want to allow the user only permissons to "open files", if possible. 

 

If there is no other way, than use the builtin-groups, what permissions (other than access to "open files") does BUILTIN\Power Users have?

BUILTIN\Power Users :
-> Can create and manage local users and groups.
-> Cannot add themselves or any other object to the BUILTIN\Administrators group.
