About administrator accounts in DLO

Any user who has full administrator rights on the media server can manage the DLO Administration Console. The user’s account must be a domain account.

In addition, the account must have rights to do the following on any remote server used for Storage Locations or network user data folders:

  • Create network shares

  • Manage permissions of network shares and directories

A domain administrator account usually has the required rights.

When you search for files to restore or view history logs, the DLO Administration Console uses the credentials of the currently logged in user to access the resources. If the user does not have the correct permissions to access a resource, DLO prompts the user to enter credentials. If credentials are input, they are used to access the folder, but are not saved.
