Network Interfaces on 7-Mode device


Hey all, I'm having issues getting any info on the Network Interfaces on our 7-Mode device.

The device I am connecting to in ZEDI is 


System Model: FAS2240-2
Ontap Version: NetApp Release 8.2P3 7-Mode: Wed Sep 11 21:30:48 PDT 2013


Thru some digging I've found that cli-ifinfo* permission needs to be applied to the API user but my IT guy is telling me cli-ifinfo* is not supported in the version we have. Does anyone have any insights on what permissions or configuration changes are needed to enable querying for Interface information and performance stats?
