Managing Device Administrators

Sep 02, 2011
Device administrators manage device collections to which they have privileges. Management tasks include assigning and removing vDisks from a device, editing device properties and viewing vDisk Properties (read-only). Device collections consist of a logical grouping of devices. For example, a device collection could represent a physical location, a subnet range, or a logical grouping of target devices. A target device can only be a member of one device collection.

To assign the Device Administrator role to one or more groups and its members:

  1. In the Console tree, expand the site where the device collection exists, then expand the Device Collections folder.
  2. Right-click on the device collection that you want to add device administrators to, then select Properties. The Device Collection Properties dialog appears.
  3. On the Security tab, under the Groups with ‘Device Administrator’ access list, click Add. The Add Security Group dialog appears.
  4. To assign a group with the device administrator role, select each system group that should have device administrator privileges, then click OK.
  5. Click OK to close the dialog box.
