NetApp-Harvest manager poll error




I have recently install Harvest 1.2.2 but get the following error when trying to poll the cDOT cluster;


root@netapp-graphite:/opt/netapp-harvest# /opt/netapp-harvest/netapp-worker -poller "CLUSERNAME"

I can't seem to find supporting information for this error? Any information would be great 🙂
