Configuring non-administrator users to run the sensor

Non-administrator user accounts must have permission to run the VMware Virtual Center server sensor. You can assign the required permissions using the VMware Infrastructure Client.

Note: Administrator accounts have the necessary permission by default and do not require this procedure.
To assign the required permissions to a non-administrator user account, complete the following steps:
  1. From the VMware Infrastructure Client, log on to the VMware Virtual Center server using an administrator account.
  2. Click the Permissions tab.
  3. Assign the Read-Only role to the non-administrator user account you want to have permission to run the sensor. For more information about how to assign roles to users, see the VMware documentation.
