Configure access management settings

Default access settings include whether to send NTLMv2 responses for SMB connections, the identity type to store on disk, the Windows workgroup name for running in local mode, and character substitution for spaces encountered in user and group names.


  1. Click Access > Settings.
  2. Configure the following settings as needed.
    Send NTLMv2
    Specifies whether to send only NTLMv2 responses to SMB clients with NTLM-compatible credentials.
    On-Disk Identity
    Controls the preferred identity to store on disk. If OneFS is unable to convert an identity to the preferred format, it is stored as is. This setting does not affect identities that are currently stored on disk. Select one of the following settings:
    Allow OneFS to determine the identity to store on disk. This is the recommended setting.
    Always store incoming UNIX identifiers (UIDs and GIDs) on disk.
    Store incoming Windows security identifiers (SIDs) on disk, unless the SID was generated from a UNIX identifier; in that case, convert it back to the UNIX identifier and store it on disk.
    Specifies the NetBIOS workgroup. The default value is WORKGROUP.
    Space Replacement
    For clients that have difficulty parsing spaces in user and group names, specifies a substitute character.
  3. Click Save.

What to do next

If you changed the on-disk identity selection, it is recommended that you run the PermissionRepair job with the Convert repair type to prevent potential permissions errors. For more information, see the Run the PermissionRepair job section.
