The Access Control configuration file, Access Control.cfg, defines the access control groups by which Insight Server grants permissions to files based on the attributes (OU, CN, and so forth) of the incoming connection’s certificate.

If you need to provide access to new users or new machines, such as when adding a machine to an Insight Server cluster, you simply edit the Access Control configuration file.
