I'm trying to setup VSC with a username other than root in order to restrict access. I created the role and group and then tried a local username, vsc-monitor. I modified the credentials in VSC and it worked. But since I have multiple filers, i wanted to try it with a domain user so i don't have to create the username and password on each filer. I added the domain user to the same group that i added the local netapp user to and i get the following error:
Missing privileges for username:domain\vsc-monitor,role:discovery
in order to determine which controller privileges are allowed for this username, the following controller privilege is required:useradmin-user-list
please log in using a username with correct privileges.
VSC 4.1 doesn't support active directory accounts on the storage controller - but you should be able to achieve leveraging the same username and passwords on multiple controllers by using the User Creator Tool (which was actually developed by the same engineer who created VSC).
