Article Summary

The CTERA Edge Filer includes built-in user groups: Administrators,** Read Only Administrators**, and Backup-Operators. Backup-Operators is used by the migration tool. You can create additional user groups to meet your organization's requirements. It is possible to add each user to more than one group.

Note: The built-in user groups must not be deleted.

CTERA Edge Filer administrators can create local groups with nested Active Directory groups. Nesting Active Directory groups within local groups is useful when addressing frequent changes in branch user hierarchies. The Backup Operators group initially has no members and is for users who require access to backup files and folders, even if they do not have the correct ACL permissions.

To add or edit a user group:

  1. In the CONFIGURATION tab, select Users > Groups in the navigation pane.
    The Groups page is displayed.
  2. To add a group, click New.
    To edit a group, either click the group name or select the group row and click Edit.
    The Specify Group Name window is displayed. If you are editing an existing group, the window is displayed with the group details.
    Note: You cannot edit the Administrators and Read Only Administrators group names or descriptions.
  3. Specify the group name and optionally, other details.
  4. Click Next and select the group members.
  5. Select the group whose member you want to include.
  6. Either start to enter a user name is the Quick Search text box or, click ... and select the user from the list.
  7. When you are done adding users, click Next and then Finish.
