anyone knows which permissions are in real necessary to connect the vCenter within WFA?
the Installation and Setup Guide mentioned an vCenter admin account.
thx and regards
See The Solution
Trying to understand your query.
Are you looking for the "previleges" to be set for an user in vCenter, so that this user
can be specified in WFA while creating the vCenter Datasource?
Is you intent not to provide the admin account details to WFA because of some reason.
you totally right, my customer want to setup an vCenter Admin Account for the WFA connection.
So did you know the specific permissions for that use case?
Thanks Jen. Let us do some experiments before replying to you.
Will get back to you shortly.
yeah, sounds good ...
thx and regards jens
any news regarding the try & error experiment?
thx & regards
Minimum permission needed for a user is System.view on the root folder which is your Datacenter.
VC5.1,5.0,4.X : Minimum required Permission : The User need to be in the built-in Group Administrators
VC5.5 : A User having Role : "READ only" should suffice. It has System.View permission.
