Permissions and Ownership for Web Console Users

The Web Console is available to end users of virtual machines.

End users of virtual machines must have ownership of all VMs they are restoring (source and destination), and the required permissions needed for the operation. You can assign users or user groups as owners, including users and groups defined in Active Directory or directly in the CommCell.  Assign permissions on the Security > Associations tab for the VM or destination client.

Best Practices for Web Console Configuration

The best practice for configuring ownership and permissions for the Web Console is as follows:

  1. For each virtual machine the user needs to access, or for destination clients with Windows File System agent, assign the user or a user group that contains each user as an owner.
  2. Assign permissions for the virtual machine or client.
