Add Volume Storage Efficiency


One of our developers has created a tool using the netapp-manageability-sdk-5.3.1 for creating and managing volumes on our NetApp (cDOT 8.2.3 P2). He is trying to extend the tool to also set storage efficiency policies, but receives the following error:

<netapp vfiler="va_nonprod" xmlns="" version="1.21">

<!-- Output of sis-get-iter [Execution Time: 466 ms] -->
<results reason='Insufficient privileges: user "webinf-nonprod" does not have read access to this resource' errno='13003' status='failed'/>


But he is using the user “webinf-nonprod” and “webinf-prod” which appears to have all of the correct privileges:

::> security login show -username webinf-*

Vserver: va_nonprod

Authentication Acct

UserName Application Method Role Name Locked

---------------- ----------- -------------- ---------------- ------

webinf-nonprod ontapi password vsadmin no

Vserver: va_prod

Authentication Acct

UserName Application Method Role Name Locked

---------------- ----------- -------------- ---------------- ------

Please help me understand what we are missing.
