Admin Permissions Overview

VDMS admins have limited access to the VDS administration portal. Because VDMS is a co-managed solution there are permission sets that are not enabled for VDMS admins. These actions are reserved for the NetApp support team. If there are actions needed that can not be performed due to permission limitations, please contact support for assistance.

Account Type Settings

Within the VDMS admin account, the following settings are default.
