NaAPIFailedException: Insufficient privileges: user 'b1\mylogin' does not have read access


I am getting the below exception :

netapp.manage.NaAPIFailedException: Insufficient privileges: user 'b1\mylogin' does not have read access to this resource (errno=13003) when executing the security-login-get-iter API.

We have the mylogin with a_readonly role and a_readonly role has DEFAULT as well as security directory readonly access.

e.g as below:


UserName Application Method Role Name Locked
---------------- ----------- -------------- ---------------- ------
mylogin ontapi domain a_readonly -


Role Command/ Access
Vserver Name Directory Query Level
---------- ------------- --------- ----------------------------------- --------
cluster01 a_readonly DEFAULT readonly

cluster01 a_readonly security readonly


Is there any other access that needs to be granted, especially if I have Application Method as domain ?



Have you tried specifying the domain when you create the user account?


eg b1\mylogin

I have not tried giving the domain when you create the user account but there are many other api which are working fine. Just the security api is having issues.

I have not but the user works for other commands. Only the security one is failing.
