SureBackup Nest Folders/Resource Pool?

Post by rostantc » Jun 20, 2019 3:34 pm

I'm finally getting around to setting up my first surebackup lab in order to be able to verify backups. There are several groups that have access to our environment and none of them should have access to these labs. I was wondering if there was a way to nest the folders and labs in the setup for virtual lab so that I can only set permissions in one place instead of on each lab.

Hello Chris,

I believe you can limit access via regular VMware user permissions (i.e. set access to the lab only for dedicated users). Makes sense?

correct, but I have to do it for each lab this way, so if I have say 12 labs I have to do it 12 times in vmware. I would like to nest the folders and resource pools so that I can set the permissions only once on a master lab folder and pool and have the permissions inherited, instead of doing permissions12 times.
