Site Recovery Manager uses Single Sign-On (SSO) certificates to access the Site Recovery Manager Server.

User Accounts

The privileges of the vCenter Server administrator grant administration access to Site Recovery Manager in the default configuration. You must use the administrator credentials when you try to log in to Site Recovery Manager for the first time after the installation.

If you have administrator credentials, you can grant access to Site Recovery Manager to other users by using the vSphere Web Client.

For more information about Site Recovery Manager roles, privileges, and permissions, see the Site Recovery Manager Privileges, Roles, and Permissions in the Site Recovery Manager Administration documentation.

Solution User Account

Site Recovery Manager creates a solution user during the installation and uses it during the authentication with vCenter Server . The solution user is unique for each Site Recovery Manager instance and is for internal use by Site Recovery Manager, vCenter Server, and Platform Services Controller.

Site Recovery Manager creates an additional solution user on each remote site during the pairing process of sites that do not use Enhanced Linked Mode. Site Recovery Manager uses the solution user to perform necessary operations on the remote site.

Note:

You must not delete and modify the roles and privileges associated with the solution user accounts.

For more information about the solution users and authentication between the local and remote site, see the Site Recovery Manager Authentication topic in the Site Recovery Manager Installation and Configuration documentation.
