Some users are hesitant about installing the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere (RCA-V) because they do not want to grant 'admin' access to their existing vSphere environment.
Although you can grant the RightScale platform administrative access to your vSphere environment, it is NOT required.
However, if you want your vSphere environment to be fully supported via the RightScale Dashboard/API, you will need to grant RightScale the minimum set of permissions to access your environment by creating a role in the vSphere Client that the RightScale platform will use to access your environment. Follow the instructions below to create a role with the minimum set of access permissions. For more detailed information, see Prepare the vSphere environment for RightScale Connectivity.
