Virtual machine service configuration privileges control who can perform monitoring and management task on service configuration.

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.

Note:

In vSphere 6.0, do not assign or remove this privilege by using the vSphere Web Client.
