We get the following error when a user who is not a VMware Administrator tries to create a backup using VSC 4.2.1
The failure occurs when specifying the virtual entities we want to backup with the backup wizard.
Our environment is vSphere 5.5, VSC 4.2.1 and DOT 8.2P5 7-Mode.
We have created a network security group call VSC_Administrators and have added users to this group.
The users we have added have NetApp Administrator privs and VMware PowerUsers privs.
We added this security group to the VSC_Administrators role
We have verified that this VSC_Administrators role has the Backup Scheduled permission
We do not get this error when the user is a VMware Administrator
I have gone through the VSC 4.2 for VMware vSphere Install and Admin guide, have Googled this error and have searched the NetApp Support site and have not found a match. One post suggested to revert back to VSC 4.2.
Has anyone seen this error? How can I get VSC 4.2 to go back to, it's not on the NetApp downloads page?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

The Vmware security group that the user is in, VMware_PowerUsers did not have VSC backup permission.
So a user needs both the VSC_xxx role and the VMWare_xxx role to have the backup permission. We need both.
