Vault Secure or Unsecure

Previous Next  Print this Topic

Use the Vault Security dialog box to protect your Vaults in your Information Repository. Vaults should normally be run in a secured mode, where a Vault's media cannot be manipulated. Media cannot be imported or exported, copied, reformatted, or even relabeled. In Vaults equipped with storage devices that can be locked via software, the front panel and all access panels are locked when the Vault is operating in secure mode.

Before any media operation can be performed, such as preparing media, a Vault must be unsecured.
