TSM administrative privilege needed to use the TSM for VE plug-in GUI

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What TSM administrative privilege is needed to use the 6.3 TSM for Virtual Environments - Data Protection for VMware vSphere Client plug-in user interface?

Cause

When configuring the vSphere Client plug-in user interface, the Tivoli Storage Manager Server configuration panel requests the name of a TSM Server administrator but does not indicate which administrative privilege is needed.

Answer

Note: For information about Tivoli Storage Manager V6.4, please refer to the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Information Center article on Data Protection for VMware vCenter plug-in user roles.

The table below shows the vSphere Client plug-in user interface operations which can be used based on the privilege class assigned to the TSM administrator ID.

system privilege, unrestricted
policy privilege, or restricted policy privilege for the policy domain to which the client node is assigned

with any other privilege classes​
