Management users

Management users can perform the configuration and administration of the ECS system and of namespaces (tenants) configured in ECS.

The roles that can be assigned to management users are System Administrator, System Monitor, Namespace Administrator, and Lock Administrator as described in Management roles in ECS.

Management users can be local users or domain users. Management users that are local users are authenticated by ECS against the locally held credentials. Management users that are domain users are authenticated in Active Directory (AD) or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) systems. For more information about domain and local users, see Domain and local users.

Management users are not replicated across geo-federated VDCs.
