"security login create.." failed: failed to set field "role" to "xyz"


I am trying to setup passwordless ssh connection, but got the following error. By using the same command, it was successful on the other cluster. Could you please advice what could be the cause?


What I can tell is that these 2 clusters are running two diferent version one is 8.2.3, and the other is 8.2.1P1


clu2::> security login create -username xyz -application ssh -authmethod publickey -profile xyz

Error: command failed: failed to set field "role" to "xyz"




replace 'profile' with 'role'


security login create -username xyz -application ssh -authmethod publickey -role xyz


(I assume that there is already a role called 'xyz'?)
