Granting privileges and quota

1
On the Manage User Accounts and User Groups page, click Privileges and Quotas.

User Privileges

To grant or revoke user privileges, do the following:

Grant all privileges: To grant all privileges to a user account, select the User is granted ALL privileges check box.
Grant specific privileges: To grant specific privileges, select the privileges in the Denied list, and click Add. The selected privileges are moved to the Granted list.
Assign presets: To assign a predefined or user‑defined preset, select the Preset in the Privileges Presets list, and click Load. A predefined Preset can be identified by a trailing symbol in its name.
You can assign only one Preset. If you load a new Preset, the Granted list is overwritten with the new set of privileges.

Media Quota

The media quota is the storage limit that is assigned to a tenant to perform backup operation. When MSP registers a tenant, the media quota for a particular tenant is set through the Media Quota (terabytes) to create backup jobs. Hence, the Infinite and Up to options are disabled. To set Media Quota, see, Table 117.

Job Quota

The job quota is the maximum number of jobs the user can perform or create. When MSP registers a tenant, the job quota for a particular tenant is set through the Job Quota to create backup jobs. Hence, the Infinite and Up to options are disabled. To set Job Quota, see, Table 117.

Click Apply to save the user policy.

Using Secure Mode

Secure Mode enables only the domain users having their associated group(s) already added in NetVault Backup Server to log in or to be added in NetVault Backup Server. The privileges and other access is managed through the groups itself, and domain users cannot be assigned privileges directly while Secure Mode is enabled. This imposes a restriction on the domain users in secure mode as their associated group(s) need to be added into NetVault Backup Server before the user logs in or is added to NetVault Backup. The privileges and other access are updated as per the associated groups present in NetVault Backup Server on every login of the domain user.

3
Any user with Users- Administer user accounts privilege is able to enable or disable Secure Mode.
