Choose the Add user button and fill out the required fields. Your LaCie NAS can have up to 2048 users.
Removing a user will delete all the user's settings but not his data.
To delete a user, choose the configuration icon (pencil) at the far-right of the user's row, then choose Remove. Confirm in the dialogue window.
User data is organized in a table.
A user can access NAS shares that have been assigned to him by the administrator (see Shares). When accessing the shares, the user will be prompted for the password created by the administrator on the Users page (see Shares: Access and Transfer Files). In addition, a user can log on to the NAS OS Dashboard using his login and password, which is very helpful with LaCie MyNAS remote access. However, Dashboard rights for a user are limited to:
An administrator has access to all Dashboard features, including the ability to revise a password that has been changed by a user.
An administrator can upgrade a user to an administrator. Select the configuration icon (pencil) for the user and choose Set Administrator. To revert an administrator to a user, perform the same action and select Set local user.
Users imported from an active directory are managed by the administrator of the original domain. For example, passwords, email accounts, and groups are all determined within the original domain. However, the administrator of the LaCie NAS can remove an imported user from the device by selecting the configuration icon (pencil) at the far-right of the user's row and choosing Remove.
Users and groups imported from an active directory may have their rights adjusted by the administrator of the original domain. See Synchronize Users/Groups for instructions on synchronizing changes from an active directory.
