SMcli as non-root

Greetings,

Is there a way to run SMcli commands as non root in linux or in windows from the command line ? Keep getting the following error.

 

An internal error, error code 12, has occurred.
Possible causes include:
(1) The CLI session was run without administrator permissions, or
(2) The software installation is incomplete or corrupt.
Retry the CLI with administrator permissions or reinstall the software.
If problems persist, contact your Technical Support Engineer.
SMcli failed.

Re: SMcli as non-root

@netappMonger I don't believe that there is a workaround for this, other than to simply run as a user with root/administrator priviledges (no need to run as the actual named account). This is something that we could probably change, but as we're largely phasing out SMcli in favor of other management interfaces, it hasn't really taken priority.
