  • A. Read/Write, Read Only
  • B. Read/Write, Read Only, None
  • C. Read/Write, None
  • D. Read Only, None

Answer : B


Roles -
Role-based administration (RBA) lets you create administrative roles for users. With RBA, an administrator can allow Gaia users to access specified features by including those features in a role and assigning that role to users. Each role can include a combination of administrative (read/write) access to some features, monitoring (read-only) access to other features, and no access to other features.
You can also specify which access mechanisms (WebUI or the CLI) are available to the user.

Note - When users log in to the WebUI, they see only those features that they have read-only or read/write access to. If they have read-only access to a feature, they can see the settings pages, but cannot change the settings.
Gaia includes these predefined roles:
-> adminRole - Gives the user read/write access to all features.
-> monitorRole- Gives the user read-only access to all features.
You cannot delete or change the predefined roles.

Note - Do not define a new user for external users. An external user is one that is defined on an authentication server (such as RADIUS or TACACS) and not on the local Gaia system.
