Volumes Recycle Bin

The Recycle Bin is enabled by default, but you can also disable it. When enabled, deleted Volumes are kept in the Pool’s Recycle Bin and can be restored. If the Recycle Bin is disabled deleted Volumes are immediately destroyed and cannot be recovered.

Public IPs

Password Policy

The VPSA Admin can control the VPSA Password expiration policy and password history policy.


This gives you a uniform username and password to use when you create Servers.

This displays the key to be used when configuring IPsec tunneling for secured host connections.



NFS Domain

This sets the domain name for NFS shares. This defaults to localdomain. (NFS4 Only)

NFS ID mapping

If enabled, each UNIX (Linux) User must be defined as a NAS User in the VPSA. If disabled, UNIX Users are authenticated on the UNIX host side.

Allow Trusted Domains

This sets whether “Trusted Domains” in the Active Directory environment is supported.

SMB NetBios Name

This gives the VPSA Admin the option to change the default name of the VPSA as it apears in Active Directory. This field must be modified before the VPSA joins AD.

SMB Character Set

This gives you the default Character Set for SMB/CIFS Volumes. If you plan to use filenames with different encoding in the filename (other than English), you may want to change the Character Set. The default value is UTF-8. Changing this value while clients are connected will cause them to temporarily lose access to all SMB shares.


You can enable/disable background file system defragmentation. This also allows on-demand defragmentation.


The VPSA provides an option to download its performance metering database which contains per-minute performance statistics about all active and monitored Objects – Drives, RAID Groups, Pools, Volumes and Servers.
