NetApp Management Console (OM 3.7)

Currently Being Moderated

Trying to create and use a generic user acct as a login so management console can be dsiplayed in our NOC on a 52" monitor.

I am able to login but, I have nothing but a blank console and not able to display monitoring information.

On the other hand if I login into the managment console with a know admin user everything works fine.

I can also login into Operations Manager with my test account and gain access through the everyone group in a read only mode.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

    Hi Bob,


    Could you please let us know the output of following commands ?


    1. "dfm user role list <user>"

    2. "dfm role list <role>" (need this command output for every role listed in above command)

        Is that the complete output ? I see only one cli output and even that seems not complete.


        BTW, are you trying to create a user for performance monitoring ? Then a default role "GlobalPerfManagement" is available with required capabilities for performance monitoring.


        # dfm role list GlobalPerfManagement
        Role-name: GlobalPerfManagement
        Role-id: 17
        Description: Manage Performance Advisor
        Inherited Roles: None
        Res Id  Resource Name                       Operation                         
        ------- ----------------------------------- -----------------------------------
        0       Global                              DFM.Database.Read                 
        0       Global                              DFM.Event.Read                    
        0       Global                              DFM.PerfView.RealTimeRead         
        0       Global                              DFM.Database.Write                
        0       Global                              DFM.Event.Write                   
        0       Global                              DFM.PerfView.Write                
        0       Global                              DFM.PerfView.Delete 


        You can create the user using:


        # dfm user add -r GlobalPerfManagement raja


        # dfm user role list raja
        Role Id Role Name               
        ------- -------------------------
        17      GlobalPerfManagement
