    Usage meter SRM collection permissions

    ntte Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I have 2 vCenters in my platform that are using Site Recovery Manager between them to replicate data (VCS1 --> VCS2).

      VCenter usage collection fine, but site recovery manger is not getting info due to user permissions.

      The user that I am using to collect data are the following

      • vCenter --> Read Only user
      • SRM --> SRM Administrator

       

      Which are the correct permissions to get SRM collection?

       

      Thank you very much in advance
