I have 2 ASA's where I have to create a read-only account for an user to monitor sessions on the ASAs. The read-only account should only have permission to use ASDM and click on the Monitor tab? I donot use an AAA server at present. How can I do it? Helpful posts will be rated. Thanks in Advance.

User complained that he is having the following error "You donot have sufficient priviliges to execute commands required to load ASDM. Please contact your System Administrator." on one ASA and looks like it works on other ASA. What might be the problem.

Thanks in Advance

Can you post the configuration changes that you made to try to get this working? You should only need to create a privilege level 5 user and configure ASDM to use the local user database:

ASA(config)# username user1 password password123 priv 5

ASA(config)# aaa authentication http console LOCAL
