    Since the "analyst" administrator has been eliminated in version
    6.1, the ability to select this administrative authority will be
    disabled.
    .
    Platforms affected:
    6.1 or higher on all platforms
    

Local fix

  • Use the "operator" authority. Be sure that the option QUERYAUTH
    in the dsmserv.opt file is changed in order to use the
    "operator" authority
