Overview of ZFS Delegated Administration

ZFS delegated administration enables you to distribute refined permissions to specific users, groups, or everyone. Two types of delegated permissions are supported:

ZFS delegated administration provides features similar to the RBAC security model. ZFS delegation provides the following advantages for administering ZFS storage pools and file systems:

Consider using delegated administration for distributing ZFS tasks. For information about using RBAC to manage general Oracle Solaris administration tasks, see Part III, Roles, Rights Profiles, and Privileges, in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

Disabling ZFS Delegated Permissions

You control the delegated administration features by using a pool's delegation property. For example:

# zpool get delegation users
users  delegation  on          default
# zpool set delegation=off users
# zpool get delegation users
users  delegation  off         local

By default, the delegation property is enabled.
