To create a least-privileged user (LPU) for VNX File/Block, you must assign a certain role to the File/Block user you plan to use as your management pack credentials.

  1. Log in to the Control Station as an administrator, then navigate to Settings > Security > User Management, then select one of the following:

    • Local Users for File
    • Local Users for Block


      VNX_Control_Station_settings_security_user_management
  2. Create or edit the the user you plan to use for your management pack credentials, assigning the appropriate File/Block role as indicated below:
    1. File: Select opadmin from the Primary Group drop-down menu, and ensure "CLI access allowed" is selected.


      vnx_file_primary_group_opadmin_with_cli_access
    2. Block: Select the Storage Domain Role of Operator.


      vnx_block_add_block_local_user_operator_role
  3. Save your changes.
