What priveledges does the vcenter user need to have? Is read-only access sufficient?
Do I also need to install the snapcreator agent on the vcenter host, or just create a config with vmware plugin?

You will need Administrative level privileges. (To backup / restore datastores)
Read-Only access won't be sufficient.
For vCloud Director, we need administrator@system as credential.
With 4.1 and above versions of Snap Creator, you will need a Windows based snap creator agent either on the vcenter host, or stand alone that can talk to vcenter host.

Thanks Siva, I have seen references now indicating what you suggest that the agent can reside not on the vcenter host, which is preferable for me. In this case, when running through the vsphere configuration wizard, what host would I indicate for the vcenter host? The host where the agent is running or the actual vcenter host? How will the scserver know where I have installed the agent?

SC_AGENT is used to document the snap craetor agent host.
VIBE_VSPHERE_NAMES= is used to refer the vcenter Name.
|# VIBE_VSPHERE_NAMES=VCENTER1S1:VM1;VCENTER2;DS2,DS3:;VCENTER3::VM4 ||#|
