When defining your functional groupings for users, you must consider VMware Smart Assurance’ security implementation. The following access levels are available to VMware Smart Assurance users:
A level where VMware Smart Assurance users can access all Global Console functionality available for one or more Domain Managers, if their user profile permits it.
A level where VMware Smart Assurance users can access only Global Console monitoring functionality, not administrative functionality, at one or more Domain Managers, if their user profile permits it.
A level normally reserved for VMware Smart Assurance processes, where processes will ping hosts where other VMware Smart Assurance processes are installed to determine if the hosts are running.
A level that specifically excludes access to the Global Console.
Also consider which Domain Managers should be accessed by which users. You can define this access in the serverConnect.conf file on the servers where the VMware Smart Assurance products are installed.
