Cluster and SVM administration

A cluster administrator accesses the admin SVM for the cluster. The admin SVM and a cluster administrator with the reserved name admin are automatically created when the cluster is set up.

A cluster administrator with the default admin role can administer the entire cluster and its resources. The cluster administrator can create additional cluster administrators with different roles as needed.

An SVM administrator accesses a data SVM. The cluster administrator creates data SVMs and SVM administrators as needed.

SVM administrators are assigned the vsadmin role by default. The cluster administrator can assign different roles to SVM administrators as needed.

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

The role assigned to an administrator determines the commands to which the administrator has access. You assign the role when you create the account for the administrator. You can assign a different role or define custom roles as needed.
