local admin and drive permissions

Will the local admin always have read/write access to all the SAN folders available to the server?

thanks

Yes, unless you change the NTFS permissions.

so the default is yes, they have all access - but that can be restricted/controlled?

if this is to be restricted/controlled, another local admin can do that (to another local admin)?

If you have attached a SAN, which contains NTFS permissions, a member of the Domain, e.g. Domain Users, can remove permissions for the Local Administrator and define new permissions and access to groups and users.

users and groups can either be part of a Domain or users and groups defined Locally on the server.
