I'm getting the same error, but when trying to scan/modify/update storage systems in VSC 5.0 from the web client.

How did you fix it?


Re: VSC Permissions Error


Hi, I have the same issue and have spent 2 days trying to get it to work, what did you do to finally fix it?

Re: VSC Permissions Error


If you are using ESXi 5.x do not use NFS-VAAI 1.0-21.  Use the ESXi 6.0 NFS-VAAI 1.1.0 version.  Despite the website DL page stating you must have ESXi 6.0 and vCenter 6.0 try the IMT it will show that ESXi 5.5U2 is valid.  I was then able to install the NFS-VAAI through VSC to the ESXi hosts.
