Vess Access Control
The Vess R2000 series supports two types of access control.
1) ACL (Access Control List)
When Permissions are used, users can be granted Read-Write, Read-Only or Deny-Acess permission to a sharedisk.
When ACLs are used, users can be granted Read-Write, Read-Only or Deny-Acess permission to folder(s) in a sharedisk. Different folders can have different ACLs. ACLs give more granular access control than Permissions.
Limitations on where ACLs can be used:
ACLs can be used with local users and Active Directory (AD) users only. If authentication is done with Open Directory (OD) or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), then ACLs cannot be used. Once OD or LDAP have been configured, the default access control will be Permissions with a default permission of Read-Write as seen in the image below. While any new user will have the default Read-Write permission, a users permissions can be changed to Deny-Access or Read-Only.
Limitations on Permissions:
Permissions can be used for local users and AD/LDAP/OD users. But for OD and LDAP users, Permissions is the only option and default permission (Read-Write) cannot be changed, although users Permissions can be changed at any time.
