This doesn't work either:

> db.createUser({user: "admin", pwd: "password", roles: [{role: "root", db: "admin"}]})
2016-03-08T14:48:34.595+0530 E QUERY    Error: couldn't add user: not authorized on test to execute command { createUser: "admin", pwd: "xxx", roles: [ { role: "root", db: "admin" } ], digestPassword: false, writeConcern: { w: "majority", wtimeout: 30000.0 } }
