NetIQ Ships File and Storage Administrator 2.0
- By Scott Bekker
NetIQ Corp. announced the availability of File and Storage
Administrator 2.0. File and Storage Administrator utilizes Directory and
Resource Administrator’s Active View technology to simplify and track file, directory,
share, and service account management for Windows NT and 2000-based servers
throughout an enterprise.
File and Storage Administrator allows administrators to
delegate management of permissions over NT file systems, shares, and Windows
2000’s built-in disk quotas, which enables IT administrators to safely grant
file and share permission management to non-administrative personnel. With this
new feature, administrators can not only control what permissions are given out
over a set of files, but also whose permissions can be changed by the
Other new features include an advanced, massively parallel
reporting engine that allows administrators to take actions against the
reporting results; upgraded permission reporting; on-demand reports for
auditing, capacity planning, trend analysis, impact analysis, resource
allocation, and computer hardware; and a GUI.
