      Important Notes:   

  •         In SRM, If the user only has the Operator role and you run the status "Test" from Discovery Center, the "statistics logging" test will always fail. To confirm Statistics Logging is enabled, you should login to Unisphere as a user with Administrator privileges.     
  •         To assign Nasadmin (Administrative) Privileges to a user, you need to assign Fullnas and Control station shell allowed permission to that user.     
  •         In SRM,  to avoid discovery issues it’s better to assign administrative privilege to the users.
