I want to scrutinize the vertica cluster. when i run command /opt/vertica/bin/scrutinize. i get following error

Scrutinize Version 8.1.1-27
Using default temporary directory

Invocation information


Vertica Scrutinize Report

Result Dir: /home/dbadmin/VerticaScrutinize.20200623142812
User: dbadmin
Database: VDB
Warning: The target db is running, but it cannot
be reached. Common causes of this are:
- Incorrect passord
- Running an all-node scrutinize from a down node
when the db is up
If you intend to run without connecting to the db,
please use --vsql-off.
Latest VSQL Error:
vsql: FATAL 3781: Invalid username or password
Failed to initialize Scrutinize.
Cannot connect to running database 'VDB'

error says "invalid user or pass". when i tried to login into db using vsql -d VDB -u dbadmin -w dbadminpass i successful logged in. and can run sql commands.
another way i tried to scrutinize like /opt/vertica/bin/scrutinize -d VDB -U dbadmin -w dbadminpass, following error popped up.

Invoking worker on dbadminpass
Scrutinize Version 8.1.1-27

cfile = open(config_file,'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'dbadminpass'

I could not understand this error. plz guide on this. i also want tables info and dont want to do '--vsql-off'

    Gone through /opt/vertica/bin/scrutinize -h and found that only password argument is required to run scrutinize. No need to specify DB name or User.
    And yes we are planning to upgrade Vertica.
    Thanks and Regards
