Error 'Operation not permitted' when switching to the admin partition.

In ADC and 27.59, 'Operation not permitted' occurs when going to the admin partition.
After that, the selected admin partition becomes available.
There is no such error in
I suspect this is a release bug. Does anyone know the cause of the error or a workaround?

Look in your syslog to see which command is being denied and then you can see if you can adjust the rights.

Often times there is a show command on a specific object that is usually denied.


Example: read-only admin (regular) can't retrieve the current session list so it generates an error when signing into the regular gui.


To review the syslog:


cd /var/log

tail -f ns.log | grep CMD_EXEC


Look for DENY messages and see if there is a specific object or command failing to load when you first switch to a partition, then we can see what rights to adjust.

Also confirm which rights your partition admin account is using? If it is a full admin/superuser already, then a bug is even more likely.

The problem occurs equally under the admin account with superuser rights in any admin partition and under nsroot.
In the log I see repeating when switching to any admin partition:
Command "show system file adc.version -fileLocation "/var/nsinstall/"" - Status "ERROR: User doesn't have permission for given Destination path."
Command "show ssl fips" - Status "ERROR: Operation not permitted - Either FIPS card not present or not initialized, check SVM/Dom0."
Based on the question https://discussions.citrix.com/topic/393849-no-fips-card-present-in-the-system/
probably, need to wait for a new fix.
Thank you so much!
