The DataFabric Manager server recognizes two types of users namely Administrator and User, thereby allowing domain administrators the ability to define roles based on a company’s organizational hierarchy.
To set up administrator accounts as a user group, use the following naming convention: <AD domain>\group_dfmadmins .
In this example, all administrators who belong to group_dfmadmins can log in to the DataFabric Manager server and inherit the roles specified for that group.
This has been helpful however I am still experiencing issues. I have a Linux box hosting my DFM. What is the recommended configuration? I am able to read single AD users without issue however AD groups are translated with their AD CN when posted on the web page but I am not getting any group membership recognized.
