Adding SAN Users

Only users in the SAN’s directory can log in to a client computer and access Xsan
volumes. You can use Xsan Admin to add users to your SAN.

Add button

Select to view

current SAN users.

Note: These instructions apply only if, during initial SAN setup, you chose to use Xsan
Admin to manage users and groups. If you have a different directory configuration,
use the management software for your directory to add user accounts.

To add a user:


In Xsan Admin, select Users and Groups in the SAN Assets list.

Users and Groups appear only if you chose to have Xsan manage users and groups
during initial setup.


Click the Users button above the list of users and groups.


Click the Add (+) button.


Enter a user name and password and click OK.
