Go to priv set advanced mode.

then you can use the ls command

but is there any options to use it on Admin vserver.

Not sure what you're trying to accomplish, but ls has very limited utility.  As you found, its available in the node shell, but all you can really do with it is ls /etc. 

Re: ls command on C-Mode

You can achieve this with the NetApp PowerShell Toolkit:

# Import the DataONTAP PowerShell module

Import-Module DataONTAP

# Connect to the appropriate NetApp cDOT Cluster

Connect-NcController -Name <Cluster Management IP Address>

# List the contents of the specified directory

Read-NcDirectory -VserverContext <Vserver Name> -Path /vol/<volume name>/<folder name>

Here is an example of these commands in action:

Below command is a way of doing ls in C-Dot:

admin_node::> system node run -node filer_node-0* -command "priv set -q diag ; ls /vol/Volumename/"
2 entries were acted on.

Node: filer_node-01

/vol/Volumename/: Can't open directory: No such file or directory

Node: filer_node-02
