- Provides a walkthrough of creating users and groups in the Qumulo UI
- This might be desirable when Qumulo is deployed in an environment without Active Directory
- Admin access to your Qumulo UI
- To manage Qumulo local users and groups, first log in to your cluster's web UI as the 'admin' user (pointing your web browser to http://clustername.yourdomain.com will get you a login page), then perform the following steps.
1. Creating a new user:
- Click on the Sharing navigation menu, then Users and Groups.
- Under the Users list, click the Create button to create a new user.
- In the new user dialog, enter the desired user name and password. If you will have both SMB and NFS users, input an NFS UID that matches the user's POSIX UID on their client machine.
- Optionally, click the Groups tab and select the user's primary group, and any other groups they should belong to. Note that while a user can be a member of multiple groups, there can only be one primary group per user. Click the Create button when finished.
2. Creating a new group:
- On the Users and Groups page, click the Create button under the Groups list.
- In the new group dialog, enter the desired group name. If you will have both SMB and NFS users, input an NFS GID that matches a corresponding POSIX GID used on your client machines. Optionally, click the Members tab and add any members you wish to be a part of the new group.
- Click the Create button when finished.
You will now be able to connect to an SMB share or mount an NFS export as a Qumulo user. Note that for NFS users, the UID/GIDs of users in their Linux/Unix/Mac environment need to match the UID/GIDs used when creating users above.
