Exadata: Permission Errors as nm2user When Running Command: showtemps (Doc ID 1904185.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 06, 2020

Applies to:

Exadata X3-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The nm2user cannot run showtemps on one switch whereas running the command as root succeeds:

[nm2user@xxxxx ~]$ showtemps
Back temperature 28
Front temperature 30
WARNING Failed to read SP temperature -13 Permission denied
Switch temperature 42, maxtemperature 44
FAILURE 1 temperatures NOT OK


This may cause Enterprise Manager alerts to occur on your Exadata system since the temperatures in the IB switch cannot be collected.
