FTN-20201101: Zerto Role Based Access Control and VMware vCenter
Viewed 657 times
Zerto installs the following role-based privileges in vCenter on each new ZVM installation:
File level restore to production
Prior to Zerto 8.5, Zerto checks the vCenter privileges for each user for privileges to use each operation. Starting on Zerto 8.5 and onward, Zerto no longer performs these checks on newly deployed ZVMs.
ZVMs that upgrade to Zerto 8.5 are unaffected by this change.
Customers that have assigned Zerto specific roles to their vCenter users have the following options to preserve this functionality on new ZVM installations:
Deploy Zerto 8.0 on new ZVM installations until Zerto delivers a new installation option on a future version of Zerto
Use the Zerto ZCM for role-based access control of Zerto operations and resources
Contact Zerto Support before deploying a new ZVM on Zerto 8.5 to enable checking of vCenter role-based privileges
Zerto recommends checking if vCenter role-based privileges are required for selected Zerto operations before deploying a new ZVM on Zerto 8.5. If vCenter role-based privileges are required for Zerto operations, then continue using Zerto 8.0 for new ZVM deployments.
