Can users other than Domain Administrators access MMC?
  • Yes, users must be added to the BUILTIN\Administrators or BUILTIN\Power Users group

::> vserver cifs users-and-groups local-groups add-members -vserver <vserver> -group-name BUILTIN\Administrators -member-names <domain\user>

or

::> vserver cifs users-and-groups local-groups add-members -vserver <vserver> -group-name "BUILTIN\Power Users" -member-names <domain\user>

  • The CIFS session used by the client running the MMC to connect to the storage controller needs to be re-established so that the newly added group is present to their credential
