Virtual Machine vSphere replication privileges control the use of replication for virtual machines.

The table describes privileges used for virtual machine replication by VMware vCenter Site Recovery Managerâ„¢.

You can set this privilege at different levels in the hierarchy. For example, if you set a privilege at the folder level, you can propagate the privilege to one or more objects within the folder. The object listed in the Required On column must have the privilege set, either directly or inherited.
