Securing Your ix2 Network Storage and Contents


Groups Overview

Groups consist of one or more users, and administrators can grant each group rights to Shares on the ix2
Network Storage. Users can belong to more than one group. The Groups page enables administrators to
create one or more groups, and grant each group rights to Shares on the ix2. Security must be enabled
before you can create groups.
Refer to the
you have not done so already.
By default, there are no groups defined. Once an administrator defines one or more groups, the Groups
functionality is dynamically available when creating, modifying, and viewing users, Shares, and groups.
How Access Rights Are Granted Using Groups in Workgroup Mode
When groups are defined in Workgroup mode, a user's access rights are the most rights granted to the
user and all groups to which the user belongs. For example, assume 3 Shares exist (SF1, SF2, and SF3),
two users (UserA and UserB), and three groups (Group1, Group2, Group3). When created, UserA was not
granted access rights to any Share, and UserB was granted Read rights to SF3. Group1 has Read/Write
rights to SF1, Group2 has Read/Write rights to SF2, and Group3 has Read/Write rights to SF3. If UserA is
added to Group1, UserB is added to Group2, and Group1 is added to Group3, the table below shows the
resulting access rights for each user and group defined:
