About the CP server user types and privileges

The CP server supports the following user types, each with a different access level privilege:

Different access level privileges permit the user to issue different commands. If a user is neither a CP server admin nor a CP server operator user, then the user has guest status and can issue limited commands.

The user types and their access level privileges are assigned to individual users during VCS cluster configuration for fencing. During the installation process, you are prompted for a user name, password, and access level privilege (CP server admin or CP server operator).

To administer and operate a CP server, there must be at least one CP server admin.

A root user on a CP server is given all the administrator privileges, and these administrator privileges can be used to perform all the CP server specific operations.
