If a user or user group has the vCenter Server administrator role on a vCenter Server instance when you install Site Recovery Manager, that user or user group obtains all Site Recovery Manager privileges.

Site Recovery Manager does not perform verification of roles or permissions after installation. If you assign the vCenter Server administrator role to users or user groups after you install Site Recovery Manager, you must manually assign the Site Recovery Manager roles to those users.

You can assign Site Recovery Manager roles to users or user groups that do not have the vCenter Server administrator role. In this case, those users have permission to perform Site Recovery Manager operations, but they do not have permission to perform all vCenter Server operations.
