Managing Your ix2 Network Storage with Local and Active Directory Users

You can configure your ix2 Network Storage to allow both local users and groups and Active Directory
(AD) users and groups on the device simultaneously. While in AD mode, you can have existing local users
and groups and also create new ones. In addition, both AD and local administrator users can log into and
manage the ix2. This allows hybrid authentication on your ix2 and, if desired, you can switch between AD
mode and Workgroup mode.
This topic assumes you have already
ix2 or have enabled AD.
Enabling Active Directory after Creating Users in Workgroup Mode
After you create users in Workgroup mode, you can switch your ix2 to AD mode.
1. On the Domain Management page, select Active Directory.
2. Configure your AD settings. See
3. Click Apply.
After changing to AD mode, you are required to log back in to the ix2. Your ix2 is now configured to allow
both local administrators and AD administrators to log in.
Logging in to Your ix2
When an administrator logs in to the ix2, the admin chooses between the device name or the AD domain
name.
1. At the Login screen, choose what type of user is logging in from the Active Directory Domain drop-
down:
to log in as a local user, choose the device name from the drop-down menu and enter the
l
username and password
to log in as an Active Directory user, choose the Active Directory domain name from the drop-
l
down menu and enter the username and password
2. Click Login.
Creating Local Users and Groups in Active Directory Mode
After an AD or local administrator logs in to the ix2, that user can create additional local users and groups
on the ix2. The Users and Groups page lists all local and AD users and groups on the ix2.
1. On the Users and Groups page, click
2. In the Import Users and Groups from Active Directory page, under Local, click Users to create a
local user or Groups to create a group. You can add AD members to any local groups you create.
3. Enter the necessary credentials for the user or the group name, and click Create.
