How to grant permissions for MMC

In order to use Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to access the storage system, a user must be in the local Administrators group. Because the Domain Admins group is placed within the Administrators group, users in the Domain Admins group have MMC access also.

The following are the methods for adding users to the Administrators group for MMC access:
  • Add local users (users that were created on the storage system) by using the useradmin user modify username -g Administrators command.
  • Add non-local users (users that exist on the domain) by using the useradmin domainuser add domain\username -g Administrators command.
  • Use the MMC on the domain to add domain\username to the Domain Admins group.
