This error message may appear if you are not the root user and you try to perform an operation that requires root privileges.

Any non-root user who wants to perform an operation must be a member of the vrtsadm group. Users are added to vrtsadm by default.

To resolve the issue, perform the following steps:

  1. Check to see if the user is a member of the vrtsadm group. Enter:

    # /opt/VRTSob/pal33/bin/veaconfig -c list_user -o host_name
  2. If the user is not present in vrtsadm, run the following command to add them and give them administrator privileges on the specified host. Enter:

    # /opt/VRTSob/pal33/bin/veaconfig –c add_user –o host_name -n vrtsadm@domain.unixpwd –r Administrator -g
