Creating Groups

You can create groups of users to simplify user management. If you chose to have
Xsan manage your users and groups, you already have a group named Workgroup that
contains all 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 group accounts.

To add a group:


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


Click the Groups filter button above the list of users and groups.


Click the Add (+) button.


Enter a group name and password.


Select the checkbox next to the users who belong to the group.


Click OK.
