14.1. Introduction to Users
In Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, there are two types of user domains: local domain and external domain. A default local domain called the
internal domain and a default user
admin is created during the the Manager installation process.
Both local users and directory users need to be assigned with appropriate roles and permissions through the Administration Portal before they can function in the environment. There are two main types of user roles: end user and administrator. An end user role uses and manages virtual resources from the User Portal. An administrator role maintains the system infrastructure using the Administration Portal. The roles can be assigned to the users for individual resources like virtual machines and hosts, or on a hierarchy of objects like clusters and data centers.
