Managing Permissions

Provides an overview of managing user permissions at the cluster, volume and file system levels.

You can manage user permissions at the cluster, volume, and filesystem levels. Cluster and volume permissions use access control lists (ACLs) to specify which actions a user can perform on a cluster or volume. File system permissions and Access Control Expression (ACE)s control user access to volumes, directories, and files, similar to Linux file permissions. Users get the permissions that are directly assigned to them as well as the permissions assigned to the groups they are in. You must have fc permissions to manage permissions.
