Access Controls

On your Windows server or ESXi host, you must configure iSCSI or Fibre Channel connections with your volumes on the array in order for your server or host to access those volumes. By using certain features of iSCSI or Fibre Channel, the arrray OS can control who has access to your volumes. Access control list (ACL) is another term for access control.

The array OS supports multiple methods of access control: user permissions, CHAP accounts, iSCSI initiator groups, Fibre Channel initiator groups, and VLAN segmentation and tagging. You can apply access controls when you create a volume or at any later time.
