Create a SnapLock administrator account

Contributors

You must have SnapLock administrator privileges to perform a privileged delete. These privileges are defined in the vsadmin-snaplock role. If you have not already been assigned that role, you can ask your cluster administrator to create an SVM administrator account with the SnapLock administrator role.

What you’ll need
  • You must be a cluster administrator to perform this task.

  • You must have logged in on a secure connection (SSH, console, or ZAPI).

Steps
  1. Create an SVM administrator account with the SnapLock administrator role:

    security login create -vserver SVM_name -user-or-group-name user_or_group_name -application application -authmethod authentication_method -role role -comment comment

    The following command enables the SVM administrator account SnapLockAdmin with the predefined vsadmin-snaplock role to access SVM1 using a password:

    cluster1::> security login create -vserver SVM1 -user-or-group-name SnapLockAdmin -application ssh -authmethod password -role vsadmin-snaplock
