VEMS Administrator Background

Account Administrators in the Veritas Entitlement Management System can add/modify/deactivate Users. Customers are fully responsible for their Accounts and are expected to limit User access to only authorized Users.

The Order Fulfillment process will add the Technical Contact on the order as a User to the VEMS Account (Entitlement Owner Account listed on the Certificate) listed on the order. The first User of a new Account is given Administrator privileges so that they may add additional Users as required.

For the full Veritas Entitlement Management System Guide, please see
