Read only Netapp SVM access

NetApp_Journeyman

Hi,

 

Is it possible to give clients Read Only SVM access? I have someone who needs to access several SVMs and I don't want to give them admin access

 

Thank you

Sure is. It’s called RBAC

 Role Based Access Control

 

 you would need to create a svm mgmt LIF for the svm. Create the role to allow the Read only access. Create a user with the new role

Are you talking like a CIFS share or CLI/ZAPI/REST access?

Hello @NetApp_Journeyman,

 

Specifically, you will need to configure the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) to use the role "vsadmin-readonly" if you are trying to configure read-only access; thanks @TMAC_CTG. Keep in mind this is for SVM Administration and not the same as client-specific RBAC for shares and files within an SVM, which will be controlled through Active Directory.
