Securing an EVS

To change an EVS into a secure EVS, you must add an individual security context.

Procedure

  1. Ensure the EVS Security license key is installed.

    Before you can specify an individual security context for an EVS, the secure EVS license must be installed.
  2. Navigate to Home Server Settings EVS Management to display the EVS Management page.

  3. Select the check box for the EVS you want to disable, and click disable.

  4. Click the details button next to EVS you want to change into a secure EVS.

  5. Click change to add an individual security context to the EVS.

  6. Click OK to confirm the change, or cancel to return to the EVS Details page.

  7. Select the EVS, and click enable.

  8. Recreate CIFS names for the secure EVS.

    For information on specifying a CIFS name for the secure EVS, refer to the File Services Administration Guide.
  9. Adjust CIFS shares for the file systems in the secure EVS.

    For information on recreating CIFS shares for the file systems in the secure EVS, refer to the File Services Administration Guide.
  10. Specify user and group access for the secure EVS.

    For information on configuring user and group access to file systems in the secure EVS, refer to the File Services Administration Guide.
  11. Configure name services for the secure EVS.

    For information on configuring name services for the secure EVS, refer to the Network Administration Guide.
  12. Configure the EVS name space, if necessary.

    If you want to use a name space with a secure EVS that does not use the global configuration settings, you must configure an EVS name space for that secure EVS.
