NetIQ Ships File and Storage Administrator 2.0

NetIQ Corp. announced the availability of File and Storage Administrator 2.0. File and Storage Administrator utilizes Directory and Resource Administrator’s Active View technology to simplify and track file, directory, share, and service account management for Windows NT and 2000-based servers throughout an enterprise.

File and Storage Administrator allows administrators to delegate management of permissions over NT file systems, shares, and Windows 2000’s built-in disk quotas, which enables IT administrators to safely grant file and share permission management to non-administrative personnel. With this new feature, administrators can not only control what permissions are given out over a set of files, but also whose permissions can be changed by the administrative delegate.

Other new features include an advanced, massively parallel reporting engine that allows administrators to take actions against the reporting results; upgraded permission reporting; on-demand reports for auditing, capacity planning, trend analysis, impact analysis, resource allocation, and computer hardware; and a GUI.
