Created 06/14/2012 04:58  |   Updated 06/15/2012 07:28

The unit has a limitation that it can download up to 1000 domain users.
If users want to utilize domain user accounts, they will need to use the Delegate Authority to an external SMB Server option.
To do this, select Workgroup and put a checkmark next to the following:

  • "Delegate Authority to External SMB Server"
  • "Use Windows Domain Controller as Authentication Server"
  • "Automatic User Registration"
  • "Authentication Shared Folder"


Enter the information.
The "Authentication Shared Folder" option will create an open share. Have the domain users that are to access the unit login to that share.
This will register those users on the Terastation. Afterwards, users can set Access Restrictions on the shares utilizing those users and remove the "Authentication Shared Folder".
