using vix api with non-root user to download disk info/data.

I am trying to connect to ESX 4.1 to download data from disk(vm snapshot), All this code works fine with root but doesnt work for another Administrator user - suser.

suser has is Administrator , Also tried adding in root group. With some changes I can ssh to ESX box using  suser, but my client always fail with username/password incorrect.

vix version i am using - VMware-vix-disklib-5.1.1-1042608.x86_64

my client side vix related logs

I  think this is corresponding log from hostd-*.log
