Configuring email notification settings

In the DR Series system GUI, you can configure the email notifications/system alerts that are sent to users who have been assigned the Email Recipient role. For more information about the Email Recipient role, see the topic, “Adding a User.” You can also send a test email message during this configuration process to verify that the proper email recipients receive the proper system alert messages and notifications.

To configure email notification settings, complete the following steps:

Select System Configuration > Users.
The Users page is displayed.
In the Email Relay Hostname field, enter an external mail server (aka relay host) fully qualified domain name (FQDN), hostname, or IP address..
Select Yes or No for the following options to define the type of notifications and alerts to be emailed to the Email Recipient user(s).
To send a test message, click Send Test Email Message.
Click Save.

Configuring share-level security for CIFS shares

The DR Series system supports setting up share-level permissions for CIFS shares using the standard Microsoft Windows administrative tool, Computer Management. Computer Management is a component that is built into the Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, and XP operating systems.

This administrative tool lets you control access to shares and also configure read-only or read-write access to user groups or individual users within the Active Directory Service (ADS) when joined to an ADS domain.

To implement share-level security on a DR Series system that has been joined to an ADS domain, make sure that you have mapped a drive on the DR Series system using an account with DOMAIN\Administrator credentials (or by using an account that is equivalent to a domain administrator). For more information about joining to an ADS domain, see Configuring Active Directory Settings.

Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management.
The Computer Management page is displayed.
Click Action > Connect to another computer... .
The Select Computer dialog is displayed.
Click Another computer, type the hostname or IP address for this DR Series system, and click OK.
The Computer Management page is displayed with the designated DR Series system listed in the left pane.
Click System Tools, and click Shared folders.
The Shares, Sessions, and Open Files folders are displayed in the main pane of the Computer Management page.
Click Shares to display a list of the shares managed by the DR Series system.
The specified share Properties page is displayed.
Click the Share Permissions tab in the specified share Properties page.
The Share Permissions view in the Properties page is displayed.
To add access for a new group or user, click Add... to display the Select Users or Groups dialog.
Click Object Types..., choose the object types you want to select (Built-in security principals, Groups, or Users), and click OK.
Click Locations... and define the root location from which to begin your search, and click OK.
In the Enter the object names to select list box, enter any object name(s) you want to find.
Click Check Names to locate all matching or similar object names that are listed in the Enter the object names to select list box, by using the object types and directory locations you selected.
Click OK to add the object to the Group or user names list box.
In the Permissions pane for the selected object, select the Allow or Deny check box to configure the following permissions:
Click OK to save the selected share permission settings associated with the selected object.

Managing containers

Managing containers

In the DR Series system, data is stored in containers, which are stored in storage groups. Some containers function like a shared file system. These types of containers can be assigned a specific connection type, for example, NFS/CIFS or RDA (including both OST and RDS clients). These containers are then accessed via NFS, CIFS, and RDA protocols. You can also create virtual tape library (VTL) type containers, which can be accessed via NDMP, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel (which is available only on the DR4300 or DR6300 systems).

In the DR Series system GUI you can manage your storage groups and data containers, including viewing storage groups and containers, creating new storage groups and containers, modifying or deleting them, moving data into containers, and viewing current statistics.

Viewing containers

You can easily view a list of containers in your DR Series system. To view the list of containers, follow these steps.

In the left navigation menu, click Containers, and then select the storage group that has the containers you want to view. (If you only have the DefaultGroup storage group, you will not need to select a group.)

The Containers page is displayed.

Storage Group—The storage group to which the container belongs.
Container—The name of the container.
Marker Type—The marker type that supports your Data Management Application (DMA).
Access Protocol—the connection type/access protocol for the container:
Connection Status—The status of the connection as available or unavailable.
Replication—The current replication status as:
NOTE: For newly created OST or RDS containers, the Replication status displays N/A. When replication data has been deleted from an existing OST or RDS container, the Replication status also displays N/A. For existing containers that are in the process of deleting a large amount of data, the Replication status displays Marked for Deletion to indicate that the data deletion process has not yet completed.
