Global config file ignored in GUI operations in SC 4.0P1

Currently Being Moderated


we're attempting to start using version 4.0P1 of Snapcreator, Linux architecture. There, however, we experience strange behaviour of root global config file not being applied in some GUI operations - like deleting snapshots, clones. Those GUI operations end up with errors like "Controller X.X.X.X has no username defined in config file, Exiting". That's not true, however, and the same operation completes successfully when done via Snapcreator CLI.


As the vfiler credentials are set and enabled only in root global file and we only have small subset of application-specific parameters defined in the profile global and application config file, it makes me feel that the global file parsing is not working as it was in 3.6. There we've been using the configuration file hieararchy of "root global << profile global << config file".


We have set the parameter USE_GLOBAL_CONFIG=Y in all global and non-global configuration files.


Is this global config processing working to anybody in GUI operations on 4.0P1?
