    folder structure

    Abid Khemiss

      What would be the best way to split Dev, Test, Prod Servers?

       

      of course the RBAC model would have 3 roles for deploy (deploy_dev,_test,_prod)

       

      What would be the most efficient and secure?

       

      Thanks

          as long as the permissions are set properly on the servers the folder structure will not matter.  for example you can have 1 'all servers' smart group and each role would see only their servers.

            do you mena that I can put a role against each individual server?

             

            we are talking about 5000 servers here. are you advising to use the ACL policy?

              My point was that the folder structure will not making something more or less secure if you set the permissions on the server objects properly. 

               

              How will you set the permissions on the server objects for each environment?  How do you know if a server is dev, stage or prod? Do you want to put them into static or smart groups and apply an acl template w/ the proper permission set, or some other method?  If you need to use the server groups to do this, they I'd create separate server groups for each environment.
