Minimum Server Permissions Required

Oct 13, 2009 at 7:00 PM

What server permissions are required to perform basic operations using SUSHI?  I have remote access to the server and can run the application, but when I go to the Meta Data screen and click "Retrieve Lists," I get "site not found."  Our main SharePoint administrator does not get this error, but he has "God" level access.  The amount of metadata I need to update will take a couple of hours, so I don't want to ask him to do it, but they're also not going to grant me full administrator privileges on the box.  Is there a reasonable permission level I can request that will work?  Thanks.
