Assuming you want this admin account to be a cluster admin (vs. scoped to a single SVM) you'd run the following:

 

security login create -vserver <cluster name> John.Doe -application http -authmethod cert -role admin
security login create -vserver <cluster name> John.Doe -application console -authmethod cert -role admin
security login create -vserver <cluster name> John.Doe -application ontapi -authmethod cert -role admin
security login create -vserver <cluster name> John.Doe -application service-processor -authmethod cert -role admin
security login create -vserver <cluster name> John.Doe -application ssh -authmethod cert -role admin

 

Just makes sure you specify the base cluster for the <cluster name> argument above.  You used "cert" as the authmethod in your examples (so I re-used it above) - was that intentional and you're planning on doing a certificate exchange for this account?  If you're planning on re-usable password for access specify "password" in that argument.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Chris
