Need to create a Data OnTap user for shutdown purposes only

I am looking for some direction here. I am trying to develop a procedural document for performing emergency shutdowns of our filers in our various data centers. I would like to create a user account that only has the capability to perform the following::


  • cf disable
  • halt cifs
  • halt nfs
  • shutdown a filer
  • halt
  • boot


I am being told that to perform these functions the user must be a full admin.but this will not work in my environment. Is it possible to automate this procedure? I have both 7-mode and cluster mode filers to deal with.



Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,
