Add User to EMC

From the OS add a new user. In VMWare login as root into the console and use the useradd <name> command to create the new user. Set a password with the passwd <name> command. You also need to add the user in EMC under Administration>Users and specify the group access.

Aside… to search for config files archived by EMC in the virtual appliance type…

find / -name *.cfg

Inventory Manager>Data Storage>Directory Path

Specify the base directory where data for Inventory Manager is stored. This data includes capacity reports, configuration templates, configurations, and property files.
