This topic explain how to map storages to profiles.
Understanding mapping of storages with profiles
By mapping storages with profiles, you can limit the number of storages to which users associated with a profile can backup data. Let us assume you have 5 storages for your organization. You want to ensure that data of all user associated with the 'Finance' profile is always backed up on the 'Accounts' storage. To prevent the creation of any user that is associated with the 'Finance' profile, but backs up data on a storage other than 'Accounts', you must map the 'Accounts' storage with the 'Finance' profile.
You can map multiple storages with a single profile. You can also limit the storage space utilized by each profile. For example, you can map the 'Finance' profile with 15 TB storage space on 'Accounts 1' storage and 20 TB storage space on 'Accounts 2' storage.
Note: Mapping storages to a profile affects all users of that profile. Once a profile is mapped to some storages, you cannot create new users who belong to that profile, but can back up data on any non-mapped storage. Backups from existing users who backed up data on a non-mapped storage will fail.
