Post subject:  Creating credential file for ESX host explorer on 3Par

Having issues creating the credential file to enable host explorer on vmware.

Environment

power CLI 4.0.1
3par Recovery manager software 2.2.0.16

ESXi 4.1/VC 4.1

Running the command
RMVMware VcenterRegister -vcserver XXXXXX -vcuid [username] -vcpwd [password] -vcfile c:\temp\mycred1.xml

It fails with the following error.

Failed to validate VC credential. Additional information: property 'configManage
r.storageSystem' not found in HostSystemInfo

Credentials are fine. Have tested this by inputting invalid credentials and get the following

"Failed to validate VC credential. Additional information: Permission to perform
this operation was denied."

Any ideas where I sould be looking? We have successfully used this in our test environment which is supposed to be identical to our production environment. Have logged a call with HP/3Par and not getting anywhere quickly.

Are you trying to use a non-admin or read-only account by chance? It looks like it needs the specific right "configManager.storageSystem", I suspect thats an ESX privilge?
