Users and Files

After you clicked into the “management console”, you will be in the dashboard for the tenant. When you are at the dashboard, the top two objects to manage are users (1) and folders (2). If you are using an Active Directory for importing users and permissions you can connect to your Active Directory by clicking the wrench icon (3).

Active Directory - LDAP

In the AD Settings view you can add your local settings. Click Edit (1), then select “Enable Active Directory Integration” (2).

CONNECTING TO ACTIVE DIRECTORY (AD)

This gives you access to all the settings fields and the Advanced Settings Tab (3). Once you have filled in the settings with an Administrator User account from your Active Directory, click APPLY to accept your changes.

Active Directory - Remote

If the users are coming from remote locations, away from the CentreStack server (so it is not in the same Local Area Network), the first step to take is to install the “server agent” software on a remote file server, as long as the file server is in the same remote Active Directory domain. Log into CentreStack from your File Server and download your Server Agent client. You can access this by clicking the (+) icon. Once this is setup on your File Server, CentreStack can access it to connect to your Remote Active Directory.

DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL

Note

“Server Agent” software can import remote file server network share, and also import remote Active Directory users. Once Server Agent is installed and setup in remote location, the tenant administrator can use the Client Management Console “Migrate CIFS Shares” and “Migrate Users” (1) to import shares and users from Active Directory. Other actions are availible through the dropdown menu (2).

In the Web Portal you can also just add Native CentreStack Users by clicking the Users link. Once in the Manage Users view, click “Create or Migrate User” (1) and in the new window choose “Native User” (2).

WAYS TO ADD STORAGE LOCATIONS

File Servers

If you have existing file server in the Local Area Network (LAN), you can import the network share directly to CentreStack (1). Under Remote File Servers, you can install the Server Agent client (2) and access your file server remotely.

ADDING REMOTE FILES

Note

Server Agent is only required when the remote file server doesn’t have direct LAN (local area network) access to the CentreStack. Server Agent will be used in this case to facilitate communication between the CentreStack server to the remote file server.
