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.
