I'm trying to look at some performance issues on my Netapp filer using the perfstat tool. I've downloaded the Netapp support toolkit and i'm trying to run perfstat from that. I enter the IP and login information for the perfstat tool but I get an "unable to connect to controller, check the account name or password" message. I have looked online and I understand that I need to use the plink utility to store some security information in my local registry, see the link below.
However when I try and use the plink utility I also get access denied. I am using the same root login credentials I use to login to the storage via Netapp system manager.
