          Read only should be enough and you can check additional information in the following link: Minimum Requirements


          To pull events, tasks, and alarms data from a vCenter Server, you must provide a set of user credentials for that vCenter Server. The minimum role required to register and unregister vRealize Log Insight with a vCenter Server is Read-only. The role must be set at the vCenter Server level and propagated to child objects. To configure ESXi hosts that a vCenter Server manages, vRealize Log Insight requires additional privileges.

            Thanks for the response.

            I was looking for what was needed to configure ESXi hosts that a vCenter Server manages but I realize I did not have that in my message so no way you would have known that.  I have found the information I need so all taken care of.  Thanks for the quick response anyway.
